Brave Conversations

Please join our UTUUC Anti-Oppression Anti-Racism Committee and the Unitarian Church of Hinsdale’s Racial Equity Team for our monthly VIRTUAL Brave Conversations discussion.

This month in honor of Black History Month, we’re hosting a speaker from Naper Settlement to talk about the history of housing discrimination in the western suburbs.

Event details:
Date | Time: Thursday, February 15, 2024, from 7–8:30pm CT on Zoom
Speaker
: Andrea Field, Ph.D., Curator of History, Naper Settlement
Topic: Unvarnished: Housing Discrimination in the Western Suburbs

Strategies in the suburban campaign for open housing will also be highlighted, including influences from corporations, churches and colleges.
