Affordable Housing Update

Our workshop on “Healing Through Exploring Local History of Segregation & Racism” was so effective, that the ISAAC Housing Task Force and TRHT (Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation) are planning on repeating it! We’re looking for an evening date for municipal leaders who were not at the February workshop, especially officials from Portage, Texas, Oshtemo, Kalamazoo Township, Parchment, Comstock and Galesburg. We’re also planning a follow-up workshop on housing policy changes that would help our communities repair the harm caused by decades of red-lining and racially restrictive covenants. And we know there will be an enthusiastic response as soon as we’re ready to open both workshops to everyone!
