On November 19, 2022 Student Researchers Ava LaPlante and Victoria Delgado-Palma presented their research at the Association for Public Policy Analysis & Management (APPAM) 2022 Conference as a part of the Welcoming the Dear Neighbor? project. Their paper, ‘Welcoming the Dear Neighbor?: The Economic Impact of Racial Covenants’ looks at segregation in Hennepin and Ramsey Counties from 1880 to 1940 as well as how growing up with racial covenants in neighborhoods affects economic outcomes. They have been working with their mentor Dr. Kristine West on the Welcoming the Dear Neighbor? project since Summer 2022.
