Retired police chief Daniel Hahn will examine how discriminatory practices shape a community – and a way forward.

About the Event

In the final presentation by former Sacramento police chief Daniel Hahn, he will take us home, helping us to understand how the government made it ever more difficult for African Americans to gain the American Dream of home ownership. He’ll dive deeply into the long-term impact of redlining and other exclusionary tactics in real estate and how discrimination shapes communities. Through examples from history, such as racial covenants or clauses preventing people of color from buying or occupying land, and current events, you will gain a better understanding of systemic racism whose effects can still be seen in our neighborhoods today.

Chief Hahn served as the City of Roseville’s chief of police and first African American peace officer as well as the City of Sacramento’s first African American police chief. Today you can follow Chief Hahn via his podcast, “A Way Forward.”
