Join in a unique event featuring Maria Krysan and Kyle Crowder, authors of the innovative new book, Cycle of Segregation, which proposes fresh insights into hidden factors that perpetuate residential segregation and highlights successful approaches to overcoming it at the local level.
Clients and staff of two such approaches—the Oak Park Regional Housing Center and the Housing Choice Partners—will discuss their stories and bring to life the ideas of the book. MPC Vice Prsident Marisa Novara will be one of the event's featured speakers, sharing more details about our Cost of Segregation initiative.
The program will close with opportunities for advocacy and action that community leaders, policymakers, and philanthropists at the local, state, and federal level can pursue.
Doors open at 9:00 a.m.; program starts at 9:30 a.m. Due to building security, event registration and a photo ID are required to attend this event. Please make sure to use the 304 State Street entrance.
