Richard Rothstein's The Color of Law presents us with the history and knowledge of how past racial redlining in America is not just the product of private real estate developers and local residents but also the byproduct of explicit government policies encouraging this behavior. The Color of Law encourages readers to reexamine their local government's past role and how it still influences our current housing and built environment. Join DPL with Denver’s Community Active Living Coalition and Sarah Showalter, City Planning Services Director for a virtual discussion on housing equity and more. Find the book and eBook at Denver Public Library. Participants are also eligible to obtain a copy of the book from CALC if all copies of the book are checked out - visit this form to request a copy.
