Shane Wiegand, cofounder of the Antiracist Curriculum Project, will be speaking at Gates Presbyterian Church on the History of Redlining in Monroe County.
Redlining refers to exclusionary tactics that led to neighborhoods becoming segregated by perceived skin color. Shane will explain how policies and decisions made in the 1930s-1960s shaped who lives in the City of Rochester and who lives in the suburbs, including some examples from the town of Gates.
