Segregation, Race, and City Policy

March 10, 2021 @ 12:00 am

Beginning in the 1920s, state and federal policy aided and abetted the segregation of Americans through housing policies, zoning ordinances, economic development, and urban revitalization. Although much of these aims have been discarded, the policies are still with us. This discussion will identify which remnants are still with us and how cities can finally put them to rest.

During the event, submit your questions to dolequestions@ku.edu for the question-and-answer portion of the program.

“Segregation, Race, and City Policy” will feature our special guests, Edward J. Pinto and Mark Treskon. Edward J. Pinto is an American Enterprise Institute (AEI) resident fellow and director of AEI’s Housing Center. The Center monitors the US markets using a unique set of Housing Market Indicators. Active in housing finance for over 40 years, he was an executive vice president and chief credit officer for Fannie Mae until the late 1980s. Mark Treskon is a senior research associate in the Metropolitan Housing and Communities Policy Center at the Urban Institute. His current projects include an evaluation of financial coaching programs and a study measuring the effects of arts-related initiatives on community development. Treskon has published peer-reviewed articles and book chapters on community-based planning, home lending policy advocacy, and the arts economy.

This program is closed-captioned for the hearing impaired.
