In this 50-minute webcast, Brian D. Anderson will review:
- Recent statistics on segregation in Wisconsin
- The timeline of events and cultural history surrounding segregation
- Tools used to perpetuate segregation including zoning, public housing, and more
Understand the policy roots of housing discrimination and learn to recognize impediments and obstacles to fair housing in modern-day Wisconsin property law.
