May 22nd 2019

Please join the APA-IL Diversity Committee for a group visit to the “Undesign the Redline” interactive exhibit. This exhibition displays the role of race in determining where Chicagoans lived in the 1930s – and the long-lasting impacts that continue to this day. It centers on the legacy of “redlining” in Chicago and how the practice helped manufacture the racial and wealth divides that define our region today. It concludes by asking attendees to explore solutions that can reverse discriminatory housing policies of the past.

Join us for a guided tour of the exhibit followed by a facilitated conversation to reflect on the legacies of redlining in Chicago and our collective role in undoing this past harm. For anyone interested in continuing the conversation, we’ll grab a drink afterwards to brainstorm ideas for Chicago’s future!

Speaker: Juan Sebastian Arias, Manager, Metropolitan Planning Council
