Synopsis

Undesign the Redline offers conference participants a comprehensive look at redlining policies and other mechanisms of structural racism in cities across America. Through maps, current day stories and a historical overview, this interactive presentation explores the policies that shaped why cities look the way they do today. Brought to you by the NLC Race, Equity, And Leadership (REAL) Team, this exhibit brings to life the historical background for many equity issues NLC member cities confront. The signature piece of the Undesign the Redline project, this traveling exhibit invites participants to learn the history, interact with the stories and invent the future of undoing structural inequities. Stories of cities acting to “undesign” the impacts of these policies will be highlighted; participants are invited to add their own narratives and ideas for change in their cities at the end of the exhibit. The exhibit will be open to all City Summit participants in the Concourse Foyer from 10 a.m. on Thursday – 4 p.m. on Friday, and guided tours will be offered at intervals throughout the conference to help orient participants.
