The Colorado Sun presents “Closing the Gap: a conversation with Colorado’s Black community about homeownership.” Equity reporter Tatiana Flowers is taking her reporting on gaps in Black homeownership — part of the COLab-led Chasing Progress collaborative project examining socio-economic and health equity among Black and Latino Coloradans over the last decade — a step deeper as she talks with a panel of experts about getting the Black community to a place where they have better access to homeownership. Information will include data, anecdotes and more.
