Building Inclusive Communities: The Challenges of Housing & Economic Segregation in Central Ohio

Tuesday, September 13, 2022 (7:00 PM - 8:30 PM) (EDT)


The Columbus metro area is second worst to Austin, TX for economic segregation for large metros in the US, while our housing shortage becomes more challenging each year. These trends put our future success as a region at risk.
