Synopsis

Race is not biology. It is a social construct ingrained in politics, economics and culture—and carries various economic impacts and outcomes for communities. Learn the ways America’s institutions and policies, such as redlining and housing policy, advantage some groups at the expense of others. After the film, join in on a dynamic discussion that will unpack the racialized nature of our systems and institutions and how city leaders can improve outcomes for the community with racial equity experts.
