What's Your Story?
Stories are being collected for local knowledge. We will choose a few uploaded stories to include in our Local Stories section of the website and will work to switch out stories every month, as time and submissions allow.
Do you have a story to share related to redlining, housing discrimination, Center Street, Urban Renewal, freeway construction, neighborhood change, or other renewal projects over the decades?
If you do, we would love to add your story to our local collection.
You can submit a story via Video or Document, below OR if you have an audio recording, you can send that to firstname.lastname@example.org.
