Day of Discovery, Dialogue and Action: Michelle Whitthaus (Health Equity Works) – “Segregation in St. Louis: Dismantling the Divide”

February 20, 2019
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Holden Auditorium (Farrell LTC, Medical Campus)

“Segregation in St. Louis: Dismantling the Divide”

St. Louis is among the most segregated regions in the country. Geographically-based housing divisions further inequities for residents who already experience limited access to quality education, job opportunities, health care, retail, transportation, clean air, empowering social networks, and other critical resources.

This session will cover a brief history of our region’s use of segregation housing policies and practices and provide key recommendations to help rebuild our communities and dismantle our significant divides. Attendees will discuss the policy recommendations in the areas of affordable housing; equitable development and allocation of resources.
