Undesign the Redline

Enterprise Community Partners, Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, and Mt. Pleasant NOW Development Corporation are hosting the Undesign the Redline, an interactive exhibit exploring the history of race, class and U.S. housing policy, and how this legacy of inequity and exclusion continues to shape our communities. The exhibit seeks to spark a public discourse on how discriminatory federal policies from the 1930s continue to impact Cleveland neighborhoods today.

The exhibit is on display at Mt. Pleasant NOW Development Corporation and is open to the public:
