Real Life Mister Rogers, Part 1: Good Neighborhoods
Thursday, September 23, 2021, 7-8:30 pm
Everyone wants to live in a good neighborhood but what makes a good neighborhood? Who has access to them? What happens when some don’t have access to a "good" neighborhood? How do we sustain good neighborhoods? This program will feature a panel of professionals from law enforcement, school board and real estate who, using a racial equity lens, will address the qualities of livable neighborhoods and how the stakeholders support them in the face of change.
Real Life Mister Rogers, Part 2: Welcoming Neighbors
Thursday, October 21, 2021, 7-8:30 pm
Neighbors change over time. When new neighbors also bring a new heritage, bridging cultural differences can be challenging. Longtime residents may be anxious that they may say or do the "wrong" thing. The panel for this program will tackle practical strategies to become welcoming neighbors and building strong and diverse neighborhoods. Panelists will include a social worker known for her ability to link theory and practice in this realm and community members who have navigated the associated challenges. A question-and-answer segment will follow the presentations.
