The History of Segregation and Affordable Housing in Fairfield County, Part Two

Posted by Barbara Peck on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at 2:31 PM

Join us on Wed., Nov. 20, from 7 to 9 pm for a free program at the Saugatuck Congregational Church, Hoskins Hall, 245 Post Road East, in Westport.

Connecticut is one of the most segregated states in the country due to a long history of public and private actions. Please join us to explore this history and its consequences in this two-part series hosted by the Fairfield and Westport Museums in partnership with Open Communities Alliance, TEAM Westport and the First Church Congregational of Fairfield.

In Part Two, the presenters and audience will explore the impact of residential segregation, particularly with regards to the availability and location of affordable housing, and solutions to unwind this history while maintaining vibrant towns.
