Richard Rothstein, The Color of Law (Joint IE and OC Section)

February 28 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

| $5-$20

Join local planners and policy makers for a conversation with Richard Rothstein, a leading authority on housing policy, who explodes the myth that America’s cities came to be racially divided through de facto segregation – that is, through individual prejudices, income differences, or the actions of private institutions like banks and real estate agencies. Rather, The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America incontrovertibly makes clear that it was de jure segregation – the laws and policy decisions passed by local, state, and federal governments – that promoted the discriminatory patterns that continue to this day. Discuss with your colleagues how this history played out in our local areas, and consider how we, as professional planners, will address the legacy of this history in light of the housing affordability crisis, gentrification, and the 2018 passage of Assembly Bill 686 Housing Discrimination: Affirmatively Further Fair Housing.
