Neighbors West-Northwest and Friendly House are pleased to partner with Portland United Against Hate and the Office of Community and Civic Life to host:
Hate, Housing, and the Landscape of our City
Participants will understand and acknowledge our shared history; embrace our common values as neighbors and gain knowledge about our rights and responsibilities in housing. From racial exclusion laws in Oregon's constitution and racially exclusionary housing practices such as "redlining" and restrictive deed covenants, to continuing involuntary economic displacement from neighborhoods, we must learn and acknowledge the history of racial discrimination, segregation and displacement to understand the different experiences of and disparate outcomes for our most vulnerable community members. Our history consciously intended to divide us by race and class. We must find our way forward to more open and inclusive communities in a way that unites us. Offered by the Fair Housing Council of Oregon.
Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this workshop do not necessarily represent those of the City of Portland. Funding for the Portland United Against Hate Workshop Series, including this workshop: Hate, Housing and the Landscape of our City has been made possible in part by a grant from the City of Portland, Office of Community & Civic Life.
