Good Neighborhoods: Real Life Mr. Rogers 1 – September 23, 2021

Everyone wants to live in a good neighborhood but what makes a good neighborhood? Who has access to them? What happens when some don’t have access to a "good" neighborhood? How do we sustain good neighborhoods? This program will feature a panel of professionals from law enforcement, school board and real estate who, using a racial equity lens, will address the qualities of livable neighborhoods and how the stakeholders support them in the face of change.
