Coming up on Connections: Thursday, August 20

First hour: Discussing the impact of racially restrictive covenants in Monroe County

Second hour: Discussing reopening with superintendents of the East Irondequoit and Churchville-Chili School Districts

A new report from researchers at Yale shows how racial covenants and racist agreements in property deeds have created segregation in Monroe County. Our guests discuss the history of those covenants, the impact they've had on communities, and how to undo their effects. Our guests:

  • Conor Dwyer Reynolds, clinical lecturer in law at Yale Law School
  • Kevin Beckford, member of the Pittsford Town Board
  • Shane Wiegand, board member for City Roots Community Land Trust

Then in our second hour, we continue our series of conversations with local superintendents about their districts' reopening plans. This hour, we hear from the superintendents of the East Irondequoit and Churchville-Chili Central School Districts. They discuss their learning models for the fall, and their policies related to physical distancing, testing, masking, and more. Our guests:

  • Mary Grow, superintendent of East Irondequoit Central School District
  • Lori Orologio, superintendent of Churchville-Chili Central School District
