CMC: Building Inclusive Communities

September 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join CMC in partnership with the Building Inclusive Communities Consortium for a critical and timely conversation about inclusive communities and new ideas on how to achieve them.

Panelist Richard Kahlenberg has been called “the intellectual father of the economic integration movement.” His more recent work has centered on how exclusionary zoning laws have made communities and schools more economically segregated and how increasing inclusive housing can make our communities better. Kahlenberg’s writing on this topic has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, and the American Prospect, including an article about the success of Central Ohio housing mobility program Move to PROSPER.

Featuring Richard Kahlenberg, Director of K-12 Equity and Senior Fellow, The Century Foundation; Lori Ann Feibel, President, Bexley City Council; and Calvin Cooper, CEO and Co-founder, Rhove, with host to be announced.

Presented in collaboration with Building Inclusive Communities Consortium participants: Move to PROSPER; The Columbus Foundation; YWCA Columbus; Humana; OSU Center for Real Estate; OSU Women & Philanthropy; ACLU Ohio; United Way of Central Ohio; Nationwide Children’s Hospital; Columbus Coalition for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion; and NAI Ohio Equities; with technical assistance from the Harvard Loeb Fellowship Collaboratory; and promotional partners Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission; League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Columbus; Legal Aid Society of Columbus; Franklinton Board of Trade; and OSU’s The Women’s Place.
