FAIR HOUSING FOR ALL
In 1972, Heights Community Congress was formed to address housing concerns that violated the standards set by the Fair Housing Act of 1968. To this day HCC continues to work to encourage fair housing practices in northeast Ohio and to offer programming that builds a strong diverse population that engages together in community issues.
Join us for a community book discussion
In partnership with The Heights Coalition for Public Education, HCC invites you to join in:
A virtual COMMUNITY book discussion.
Wednesdays: March 10, 24, & April 7, 2021
7:00 p.m. - 8:45 p.m.
Derek Black, professor of constitutional law at the University of South Carolina, will kick off the discussion on March 10.
Schoolhouse Burning frames current state policies that privatize and underfund public education as an attack on democracy itself. The author traces how providing for public education at public expense became a “state’s absolute and foremost duty,” starting with the 1787 Northwest Ordinance, and deepening during Reconstruction and the Civil Rights Movement. Every state constitution protects public education as an institution essential to democracy.
The author makes defending public education critical to the future of democracy. He notes, “While threats to the ballot are immediately understood as threats to democracy, attacks on public education are not always fully appreciated as such.”
