Welcoming the Dear Neighbor?

We are committed to working together to make the invisible visible and to close the racial disparity gaps in housing in Minnesota.

Join St. Catherine University (St. Kate’s) as we collaborate with Mapping Prejudice to learn and investigate the hidden histories of housing discrimination, segregation, and racism in Minnesota.

We hope to learn from and engage with community members about their own stories and experiences with housing injustice, past and present.

Read about us in the St. Paul Monitor! This August our organization was recognized by the St. Paul Monitor for our part in the Know Your Como Project, which was a collaboration between the District 10 Historical Society and WTDN. This piece focuses on racial covenants in the Como neighborhood and how the community is reckoning with its history.
