Multnomah Arts Center, Auditorium

Want to know more about:

  • The exclusionary history of land use zoning?
  • The roots of our country's wealth gap?
  • How the displacement of communities can be prevented?

Join us to learn about and discuss these topics - and more - during an evening of learning and experience.

This is an opportunity to learn how historic laws, zoning and other regulations continue to affect who lives where and who can afford housing in our city.

We will discuss the common ground in our values and how an understanding of our shared history and aspirations for the future can better guide decisions for our neighborhoods and city.

Light snacks will be provided. this event is a partnership between the Fair Housing Council of Oregon and the Bureau of Planning and Sustainability. Allan Lazo Executive Director, will facilitate the discussion.
