A Cathedral’s Complicity in Redlining and Restrictive Covenants

May 22 @ 6:45 pm - 8:15 pm

Telling the Truth for a More Just Future

As Saint Mark’s Cathedral considers redeveloping the St. Nicholas property for affordable housing, there is an opportunity to reflect on the history of North Capitol Hill in which racial redlining and restrictive covenants discriminated against people of color. Segregation suppressed homeownership and wealth building opportunities for people of color and has contributed to ongoing impact of housing inequities. Join Cathedral leadership, Sophie Betz (University of Washington Seattle Civil Rights and Labor History Project), The Rev. Canon Carla Robinson (Diocese of Olympia, Multicultural Ministries and Community Transformation) and E.N. West (Lead Organizer, Faith Land Initiative of The Church Council of Greater Seattle) to learn more about Seattle’s unique civil rights history and racial segregation and consider how church communities have responsibility to honestly face this and respond in just ways in our time.
