Making Reparations: How can we come together to preserve history and ensure that every Philadelphian has a home?

When

Thursday, February 2, 2023

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Where

Virtual on Zoom

What

For the first time in more than two decades, there are more renovation projects in the US than new builds. Philadelphia has already been leading the way in this increase of adaptive reuse, and now, the city will have even more tools to do so with the recent passage of the statewide Whole Homes Repair Act, which provides unprecedented opportunities to save historic buildings and help low-income homeowners hold onto their properties. This program will explore the intersections of craft labor, historic preservation, and housing justice to discover how we can both preserve our city’s legacy of expert craftsmanship and attain housing for all.
