Join us on April 4th, 2022, from 12:00pm-12:45pm for a fair housing presentation: De Facto/De Jure: Reflections on a Time Before Residential Segregation
While America’s history of racism runs deep, the housing segregation we see today may not be as old as we think. This presentation is an examination of the historically integrated communities which were systematically destroyed by institutional policies and coercive violence, and the ways in which where we live might not be the free choice we think it is.
Samuel Goldberg is an Education & Outreach Specialist at the Fair Housing Council of Oregon (FHCO), where he focuses on history and Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) trainings, as well as the bus tour program. He also coordinates the activities of the AFFH/Systemic Investigations Committee, a collection of land use professionals and FHCO staff which serves as a watchdog for local planning activities, strategizes how best to advance AFFH in state policies, and provides technical support for jurisdictions.
