Just Action Book Release & Discussion: Charlotte, NC

Start: Monday, June 12, 2023 6:30 PM

Racial segregation characterizes every metropolitan area in the U.S. and bears responsibility for our most serious social and economic problems. We’ve taken no serious steps to desegregate neighborhoods, however, because we are hobbled by a national myth that residential segregation is de facto—the result of private discrimination or personal choices that do not violate constitutional rights. The Color of Law demonstrates, however, that residential segregation was created by racially explicit and unconstitutional government policy.

Just Action describes how we can begin to address this, providing dozens of strategies local groups can pursue to redress segregation in their own communities. By starting with achievable local victories, we can build a national movement that can remedy our unconstitutional racial landscape. Join us in person for a book release and live discussion with authors Richard and Leah Rothstein along with host Rev. Dr. Ricky Woods and Charlotte's Redress Round Table as they talk Just Action!
