Redlining and Opportunity360

Enterprise is hosting a new interactive exhibit exploring the history of race, class and U.S. housing policy, and how this legacy continues to shape our cities and towns. Undesign the Redline connects intentional and systemic racist housing policies and practices in the 1930s to political and social issues of today, through the powerful narratives of the people and communities affected by redlining and its legacy.

Created by social impact firm Designing the We, the exhibit uses maps and other documentation to trace the enormous role that race played in determining where people were allowed to live, and how government policy, known as “redlining,” created segregation and disinvestment in communities that persists to this day. Through Undesign the Redline, we seek to inspire a new conversation about how we can undesign these systems with intentionality and urgency, and influence the pathways that lead to better outcomes in communities.

This page features the maps that we created to accompany the exhibit. These maps explore each city's redlined neighborhoods through the lens of our Opportunity Outcomes: Housing Stability, Education, Health and Well-Being, Economic Security and Mobility.
