Housing Segregation and Homelessness
Our Path Home is excited to announce a webinar learning experience open to all Our Path Home partners on April 22, 2022 from 3:00-4:30pm.
Dr. Jill Gill from Boise State University will be presenting an overview of the history of housing segregation, both nationally and in Idaho—including how it fit into a broader system of defacto segregation across the north, how it affected economic outcomes for black people in general, and what it looked like in Idaho (Boise and Pocatello specifically).
The history of housing segregation and discrimination are part of the foundation for the present state of homelessness. By learning our history, we can work to dismantle harmful systems and practices and create equitable ones in their place.
