What’s the history of your neighborhood?
We’re hosting a series of courageous conversations on housing, land use, and the history of redlining and segregation in Montgomery County.
You’ll learn about how federal and local housing policy and exclusionary development practices impacted who could live where. This history continues to impact socioeconomic outcomes today. These facilitated workshops are an opportunity to learn, listen, reflect, share, and brainstorm ideas about the future of land use policy.
These workshops are free, open to the public, and will be limited to 50 participants. Please only register for one workshop to ensure that more people have an opportunity to attend. Click on the buttons below to go to the registration page for your selected event:
