Austin is one of the most segregated cities in the United States, with deep divisions across many sectors of our community. This panel will address how the city reached this point and what can be done to address these persistent divides.
Panelists include Greg Casar, member of the Austin City Council; Mechele Dickerson, professor at the University of Texas School of Law; Jennifer Holme, professor in the UT College of Education; and Dan Zehr, reporter for the Austin American-Statesman. The moderator will be John Henneberger, co-director of the Texas Low-Income Housing Information Service.
Attendance is free and lunch is provided, but seating is limited and RSVP is required. The program is sponsored by the Institute for Urban Policy Research and Analysis, Michael and Susan Dell Center for Healthy Living, and William Wayne Justice Center for Public Interest Law.
