Welcome to Our Neighborhood (Grades 1-4)
In the book, The Fair Housing Five, Samaria and her friends have a problem on their hands. A landlord in their neighborhood is discriminating, and together they must find a way to ensure that their community stays open to all different kinds of people. (1.5 hours)
The Housing Choice Game (Grades 4-9)
The Housing Choice Game is an interactive board game in which students experience first-hand the impact of housing discrimination and the importance of housing choice. (7.5 hours over 2-5 days)
Bringing Justice Home (Ages 14-24)
This workshop engages young people ages 14-24 in an exploration of how a long history of racially discriminatory housing policies in the United States led to widespread segregation, wealth inequalities and unequal access to opportunity, which still shape our neighborhoods today. This interactive presentation uses primary sources and critical thinking to show the impacts of these policies while also emphasizing the power of individual actions to combat injustice, from the Fair Housing Movement of the 1960s to today. (2 hours)
