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.
