CNY Fair Housing introduces
Run The Redline!
Run the Redline is a 5K Run and 3K Roll/Stroll event that traces a portion of the infamous 'redline' that helped segregate Syracuse. During the Great Depression, the Federal Government worked with local officials and real estate professionals to draw maps that placed red lines around neighborhoods deemed too risky to receive federal housing assistance. These 'redlining' maps deprived Syracuse's most racially integrated neighborhoods of opportunity, and their effects can still be felt today.
Take a deeper dive into the history of redlining in Syracuse:
