Oak Park River Forest Museum has been examining the impact of Oak Park’s 1968 Fair Housing Ordinance with the current exhibit Open House: The Legacy of Fair Housing. A special program at the museum will bring together notable village figures to discuss Oak Park’s ongoing effort to build a diverse community.
Moderated by Doug Deuchler, the panel will include long-time area residents, community activists, and leaders in our government and not-for-profit sectors such as Harriette and McLouis Robinet, Sandra Sokol, Trudy Doyle, Nancy Leavy, Joan Pope, Galen Gockel, and Sherlynn Reid.
Come at 2:30 p.m. to tour the exhibit. The panel discussion will be from 3:30 to 5 p.m. This event is cosponsored by Arbor West Neighbors of Oak Park and is included with the price of museum admission--$5 for OPRF residents, $7 for nonresidents, $3 for students ages 7 and up. Museum members are always free. Refreshments will be served. No need to purchase tickets in advance, but space is limited, so call 708-848-6755 or contact us on our website to reserve your seat.
