The Road to Resegregation

6:30 p.m. | Thursday, September 5, 2019

How could Northern California, the wealthiest and most politically progressive region in the United States, continuously reproduce racial poverty and reinvent segregation? In Road to Resegregation, author Alex Schafran tells a story of the suburbanization of poverty and the failures of regional planning, urban sprawl, NIMBYism and political fragmentation. Join the author in conversation about the book, his findings and his hopes for the future of our region. Co-presented by YIMBY Action.
