Segregation in St. Louis: Dismantling the Divide is a 115-page community-driven report on segregation and housing in St. Louis, created in partnership with ArchCity Defenders, Ascend STL Inc., Metropolitan St. Louis Equal Housing and Opportunity Council (EHOC), Empower Missouri, For the Sake of All, Community Builders Network of Metro St. Louis, and Team TIF. The report presents an extensive history of our region’s use of segregation housing policies and practices and concludes with 11 key recommendations to dismantle our significant divides. Health Equity Works (Formerly For the Sake of All), Director Dr. Jason Purnell presented the report and recommendation this fall.

Nancy Cambria, Communications Manager for Health Equity Works, will lead this discussion on the report, its recommendations, and the role Washington University has in moving forward. Attendees are encouraged to bring a friend or colleague as well as a brown bag lunch.
