FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT: MOSAICS INSPIRED BY TRAGEDYArtist Susan Ribnick brought together 36 mosaic artists from around the world to create works that react and respond to the Tree of Life Congregation shooting in Pittsburgh, PA on October 27, 2018. Eleven people were killed and six were wounded in the white supremacist terrorist mass shooting, the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in the history of the United States.

Closing the Wealth Gap: Race, Wealth, and HomeownershipThis virtual conference will explore ways to uplift our Black and Brown communities through homeownership which builds individual wealth and will ultimately help Cincinnati create a more vibrant, diverse, resilient and equitable community. The most significant indicator of systemic racism in the United States is the wealth gap between Blacks and Whites. The disparity in homeownership accounts for a significant part of that wealth gap. The gap in Cincinnati could not be more clear. Black home ownership in Cincinnati is around 31% while white home ownerships is around 73% - a 42% gap. As we seek to address the crisis in affordable housing there is the need to look at this deeper, systemic issue of the wealth gap. This means addressing the question not only in terms of subsidized rental markets but also in terms of homeownership and fair housing. This event will raise consciousness about this inequity and further discuss how we might address it in the Cincinnati region. We invite you to join us to address the many issues surrounding Black homeownership locally and nationally. We will explore how an increase in Black home ownership can become a key component in helping to create Black wealth. We will explore how this is being done in other parts of the Country and what we should do locally to promote greater homeownership among To participate, register online here, or copy this address into your browser: https://hopin.com/events/race-wealth-and-homeownership-49deb11f-ac63-403d-be8e-f7526431a0a2#top
