Event Description:
This is a virtual event.

The Urban Neighborhood Initiative and KC Chamber are co-hosting a Learning Session on September 1, to take a deeper dive into the issue of racial inequities in housing in the Kansas City area. 

Join us on Tuesday morning, September 1, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. as Dianne Cleaver, president and CEO of the Urban Neighborhood Initiative, introduces a Learning Session about housing inequities due to race. The presenters include Mikki Anderson, Vice President with Purpose Built Communities, and Tyler Cukar, a KC native living in NY who authored Orchestrated Urbanism: the Race Built City. Each will present on the topic and then you'll have a chance to ask questions. The session is free and open to all KC Chamber members and non-members.

Participants can expect to gain an understanding of the historic federal, state and local policies and private practices that blocked access of African Americans to home ownership and to specific areas of our city. Participants will also gain an understanding of how those historical policies set up decades of financial disinvestment and prevented access to jobs, education, and upward mobility for generations to come.
