now is the time for a national reckoning on race.
We envision a world where racism no longer limits where we can live or our access to vital resources, and that we all get to live in thriving communities.
to redress deep and longstanding systems of segregation.
The Redress Movement is a Black-led, bi-racial and multi-ethnic organization committed to leading a multi-racial movement that empowers communities to take direct action to redress racial segregation. We work in deep partnership with local communities to repair the harm caused both by intentional policies to segregate communities and by the racially discriminatory effects of more neutral policies. We do our work by educating, shifting the narrative, mobilizing, campaigning for, and winning Redress Victories. Our starting point is housing but we work in solidarity with others who are facing the facts of history, redressing harms of the past, and healing our nation by dismantling the barriers that divide us.
LOCAL STORIES OF SEGREGATION
The Redress Movement’s StoryMaps, designed by our in-house Research Team, provide detailed stories of segregation in Denver, Milwaukee, and Charlotte – from Jim Crow to now. Our Research Team has created these Local Stories of Segregation to illustrate how segregation reflects a collective series of actions taken by various levels of government, real estate professionals, private businesses, and individuals over decades. Though many of us may be familiar with the federal government’s relationship to segregation, these StoryMaps tell the stories of the real people and places directly impacted by discriminatory policies and practices of segregation as they occurred on the ground.
We’re confident these Local Stories of Segregation will be groundbreaking to the national conversation around racial segregation, and will mobilize citizens, neighbors, and activists to join The Redress Movement’s on-the-ground organizing efforts.
