Dallas Media Collaborative and Big D Reads presents: Modern-day   Redlining in Dallas

Investigation, conversation, and where do we go from here?
panel discussion featuring Jason Trahan, James McGee, Barbara Minsker, and Jim Schutze

Wednesday, October 19
5pm – 6:30pm
Communities Foundation of Texas – Community Room
5500 Caruth Haven Lane, Dallas, TX 75225 – complimentary parking onsite

Join us for an overview of the major findings from the Banking Below 30 series led by investigative producer Jason Trahan, one of the WFAA journalists whose story uncovered that nearly 20 percent of banks in Dallas openly refuse to lend to minority communities below I-30.

Trahan will then lead a panel discussion with the author of The Accommodation, Jim Schutze, SMU professor Barbara Minsker, whose recent study examines another form of redlining — infrastructure deserts — and James McGee, president of Southern Dallas Progress. Together, the panelists will discuss how modern-day redlining persists in Dallas and leave us with an idea of how we can move forward on economic justice and rights to opportunity.

This event is hosted by the Dallas Media Collaborative (DMC) in partnership with Big D Reads. The DMC is a group of Dallas-area news outlets, universities, and nonprofits that focuses on examining affordable housing through a solutions journalism lens.

This is a free event with complimentary food and drinks. Registration required. Register here!
