Read Your House Deed “Home Access Denied” Movie & Panel Discussion In Irondequoit

Written by on May 22, 2024

Join the Town of Irondequoit, Irondequoit Public Library, and ERASE for a screening of the documentary “Home Access Denied” followed by a panel discussion on racial covenants that are commonly found in property deeds. The 20 minute film is about the history and legacy of residential segregation in Greater Rochester and the ways ordinary people are participating in civic action to create a more welcoming, just, and inclusive community. The film explores the stories of two families and their lived experiences shaped by the neighborhoods they call home. One family living in a ‘greenlined’ suburb and the other in an urban ‘redlined’ neighborhood, each confronting the deprivations of segregation. This film is intended for audiences grades 6 and up. The film screening will be followed by a panel with the Irondequoit Town Supervisor, a representative from the Bar Association, and community members in Irondequoit working to revoke covenants from their deeds.
