William & Mary recently has launched two new university-wide initiatives — the Center for Racial & Social Justice and the Institute for Integrative Conservation. While these initiatives have different missions, the work of both includes advancing racial, social and environmental justice. In this presentation, Vivian E. Hamilton, founding director of the William & Mary Center for Racial & Social Justice, and Robert Rose, executive director of the Institute for Integrative Conservation, will discuss an issue at the intersection of their work — combating the enduring effects of redlining. A 20th-century governmental and industry practice of ranking neighborhoods for home ownership, redlining has contributed to significant racial, social and environmental injustices that still are being felt across many communities today. Hamilton and Rose also will discuss how, in partnership with others at William & Mary and beyond, we might begin to reverse the effects of redlining in our communities.

There will be plenty of time after the discussion to network and enjoy conversation and camaraderie. Beverages and heavy appetizers will be served. We hope you will join us!
