Just Action: How to Challenge Segregation Enacted Under the Color of Law is the groundbreaking new book that moves beyond the historical analysis of segregation as presented in Richard Rothstein's The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America, published in 2018. While The Color of Law showed how federal, state, and local governments created and reinforced neighborhood segregation, Just Action takes a bold step forward, offering practical strategies to tear down these systemic barriers.

This event is for housing advocates and anyone who wants to make positive change in their communities to increase housing equity, justice, and opportunity for all!

Join the Just Action Housing Justice Book Club to get a free copy of the book (we're down to our last few copies with pickup available in Montpelier only) and participate in Zoom discussion groups March 11 and/or March 25. More info and registration here.

April Fair Housing Month celebrates the 1968 passage of the Fair Housing Act. CVOEO and partners have created a robust schedule of free public education and art events to raise awareness about the importance of equal access to housing, free from discrimination, and the positive role that inclusive, affordable housing plays in thriving communities. Virtual and in-person activities include workshops, community discussions, presentations, library events, and the all-ages HeART & Home Community Art Project.

This event is made possible by Fair Housing Month sponsors and partners, with special gratitude to Main Street Landing, Vermont Wine Merchants, The Skinny Pancake, and Vermont Housing Finance Agency.
