Our Goal.

Historic preservation is one way to center and protect histories. We all have unique heritages and spaces where we make memories and live; they should be remembered & protected with that in mind.

As development continues to expand into the long-forgotten spaces of our communities, we want to work with you to do our part in restoring, preserving and protecting historic spaces that have been negatively impacted by (de facto) segregation and red-lining.

During this one-day event, we want to provide education, inspiration and activation for you to get involved in cultural heritage and historic preservation.
