Overview

This facilitation guide uses historical perspectives to ensure that discussions about race, class, and opportunity are held in an honest context – away from guilt and blame. Rather, we will understand the roles federal, state, and local governments have played in racially segregating metropolitan cities across the United States, and the ways this history still haunts our communities. We hope that through conversation, we can see and name the various ways historical residential segregation has impacted social and environmental landscapes and experiences in the present-day, and the various ways we are individually and collectively affected.
