Redlining and Resistance in Rochester with Shane Weigand

February 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Part 3 of 3 events benefiting the creation of a Rochester Civil Rights History Site in Baden Park, “Redlining and Resistance in Rochester” with Shane Weigand, this talk examines how federal and local policies like redlining, racially restrictive covenants, and urban renewal segregated Rochester, built wealth for its white citizens, and disenfranchised people of color.

This will be a virtual Zoom presentation starting at 7:00 PM. The program is sponsored by Spiritus Christi Anti-Racism Coalition (SPARC), the First Universalist Church FIRE Team and the First  Unitarian Church. Donations gratefully accepted. Proceeds from the program will support the development of the Rochester Civil Rights Heritage Site, which will be built in Baden Park.
