On Tuesday, May 16, at the Columbus Park Refectory in Austin, residents of Austin and Oak Park will get together and talk about mending the divide between the two neighbors. 

“This event is a touch point in a broader effort by residents and organizations in Austin and Oak Park,” said Rob Breymaier, executive director of the Oak Park Regional Housing Center. “We believe we can overcome the injustice of racial segregation to build a thriving and equitable Greater West Side.” 

Breymaier will present along with L!VE Café co-founder Reesheda Graham-Washington. 

The free event, which is part of the Chicago Community Trust’s On the Table conversations, starts at 6 p.m. and includes dinner. To register or for more info, contact Athena Williams or Stuart Barnes Jamieson at 708-848-7150 or email austinascending@oprhc.org. You can also find the event on Eventbrite.
