Lunch and Learn: Redlining and The Law: An event with Mayor Dave Kleis and Marshall Tanick


Friday, Dec. 4, Noon to 1:30 p.m.

Learn how the mayor of St. Cloud worked with community members to fight attempts at modern redlining and how lawyers can help.


St. Cloud attracted national attention when the New York Times wrote an article about the response of some community members to the growing immigrant population. Hear from Mayor Dave Kleis who was at the center of the debate. 


Attorney Marshall H. Tanick will present a legal perspective on modern forms of redlining. He will also discuss how lawyers can get involved to prevent implicit or explicit attempts at implementing redlining policies. 

Thank you, Mark Adelman
