ICPL hosts Sara Alvarado: Talking About "Good" Schools and "Good" Neighborhoods

Sara Alvarado

Join us for an interactive workshop to learn more about how and why schools and neighborhoods in the Midwest remain segregated in many ways. What is "redlining"? Has anyone ever asked you where the "good" schools are? Do you define your neighborhood as safe, and what does that really mean? How do we navigate these complicated conversations? Sara Alvarado brings her 25+ years of real estate savvy and her passion for racial justice to a much needed conversation that many of us are nervous to have. Her work is rooted in humanity and love and we encourage you to sign up and bring a friend or a neighbor!
