The Fair Housing Five

A new book for children

This February and March we’ve been doing a series of workshops with first grade students at Alice Harte Charter School.  In the workshop we read The Fair Housing Five & the Haunted House and talk about discrimination.  Then we discuss the things we want and don’t want in our neighborhoods, and students put on their urban planner hats and design a map of a neighborhood they would like to live in.  The students seem to really enjoy this 1.5 hour workshop and learn something new about the importance of justice and diversity and the harm caused by discrimination.  To schedule a free workshop at your school call (504) 596-2100 x. 109 or email
