Shyle Ruder, Education and Outreach Director, Fair Housing Council of Oregon



Oregon has a little-known history of housing displacement, discrimination, and segregation that has laid the foundation for the disparities we see in our state today. Come to this session to learn this troubling history. Starting from Oregon’s founding as a territory, we’ll look at how racist practices from that time still have an impact today, examine how governmental policies and programs reinforced systemic racism through practices like red lining, and delve into how the real estate industry and the FHA further solidified racial and economic disparities in the state.
