About the event: Join in a unique event featuring Maria Krysan and Kyle Crowder, authors of the innovative new book, Cycle of Segregation: Social Processes and Residential Stratification, which proposes fresh insights into hidden factors that perpetuate residental segregation and highlights successful approaches to overcoming it at the local level.

Clients and staff of two such approaches- the Oak Park Regional Housing Center and the Housing Choice Partners- will discuss their stories and bring to life the ideas of the book.

The program will close with opportunities for advocacy and action that community leaders, policymakers, and philanthropists at the local, state and federal level can pursue.

About the Series: The goal of the Legacies of Racism series is to deepen our understanding of the challenges and possibilities of policy efforts to address longstanding racial inequality. These events explore the recent and historic origins of inequalities and ask questions about what it means to try to repair systematic harm done to people and communities.
