The City of San José Housing Department invites you to attend a film screening and discussion about the history of racism in America, focusing on the policies and practices that helped create segregated suburbs and an enduring racial wealth gap. The film, an excerpt from the 2003 PBS documentary "Race: The Power of an Illusion," will be followed by a panel and audience discussion about how this history plays out today in Silicon Valley. We will also discuss efforts underway to give voice to racial equity concerns about housing and more.

This workshop will provide an overview of the issue of displacement in San José and an update on the feedback heard from the community thus far. The workshop will also include the opportunity for participants to learn about national best practices to address displacement, and to recommend and help prioritize the next generation of Anti-displacement tools in San José.
