How can Bay Area churches understand and confront housing discrimination in this area? This forum addresses the history of racial covenants, especially as they relate to housing in Pleasant Hill, CA, but with lessons for anywhere in the Bay Area. We will also discuss factors contributing to modern-day housing discrimination and historic and current movements to repair the damage caused by bias in the real estate and financial industries. Inspired by their participation in the Sacred Ground curriculum, members from the Church of the Resurrection, Pleasant Hill are hosting their second of four forums addressing various subjects about race in America.

For this forum on housing, we are pleased to welcome the following panelists: Johnicon George, president of the Tri-City NAACP and CEO of Icon Connects, a staffing firm focused on helping disenfranchised African American communities hit hard by the pandemic; Bill Martinez, the principal of Martinez and Associates, a real estate valuation firm located in Vacaville California; and The Rev. Natosha Reid Rice, minister for public life at All Saints Episcopal Church in Atlanta, Ga.
