Segregation in St. Louis: Dismantling the Divide
A Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Funders Affinity Group Meeting
Wednesday, October 17, 2018

St. Louis is among the top 10 most segregated regions in the country. 
Geographically-based housing divisions further inequities for regional residents who already experience limited access to quality education, job opportunities, health care, retail, transportation, clean air, empowering social networks, and other critical resources.

Join the Gateway Center for Giving for a conversation with Dr. Jason Purnell, Associate Professor at the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis and Director at Health Equity Works (formerly For the Sake of All). During the program, Dr. Purnell will discuss Segregation in St. Louis: Dismantling the Divide, a report illuminating how the history of housing and land use policies connects to the current divisions our St. Louis region experiences. 

Attendees will discuss the policy recommendations in the areas of affordable housing; equitable development and allocation of resources; and housing and neighborhood stability. In addition, Dr. Purnell will provide an overview of philanthropy's role in combating segregation, specifically the creation of an "Affordable Housing Trust Fund" for St. Louis County and a "Greenlining Fund" to enable home-ownership in neighborhoods that were once red-lined out of home mortgage lending.
