A History of Housing Discrimination in Oregon

April 5, 2022 | 6:30 p.m. | Virtual Event

Online, statewide & beyond

Oregon has a little-known history of housing displacement, discrimination, and segregation that has laid the foundation for the disparities we see in our state today. This event with Samuel Goldberg, education and outreach specialist at the Fair Housing Council of Oregon, will look at how racist practices from that time still have an impact today, examine how governmental policies and programs reinforced systemic racism through practices like redlining, and delve into how the real estate industry and the Federal Housing Administration further solidified racial and economic disparities in the state. 

The event will stream live on the Forest Grove City Library's YouTube channel. The program is supported by a grant from Oregon Humanities.
