Day of Dialogue, Discovery, & Action -Segregation in St. Louis: Dismantling the Divide

Holden Auditorium, FLTC, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis
660 S. Euclid, St. Louis, MO 63110

Join us for the noon session of the Day of Dialogue, Discovery, and Action at Washington University School of Medicine.  Lunch is provided!

St. Louis is among the top 10 most segregated regions in the country. Geographically-based housing divisions further inequities for residents who already experience limited access to quality education, job opportunities, health care, retail, transportation, clean air, empowering social networks, and other critical resources.

Michelle Witthaus, Program Manager for Health Equity Works, a project of Washington University, will cover a brief history of our region’s use of segregation housing policies and practices and provide key recommendations to help rebuild our communities and dismantle our significant divides.

Attendees will discuss the policy recommendations in the areas of affordable housing; equitable development and allocation of resources; and housing and neighborhood stability.
