The City of Dallas Office of Equity and Inclusion- Equity Division has been on a virtual four-part tour, exploring the history of systemic racism and the future of undoing structural inequities via the “Undesign the Redline” exhibit.

“You have to make amends for the unequal distribution of resources, the historical, intentional, unequal distribution of resources. And that’s where we begin the conversation of equity. I’m proud to say in this City of Dallas budget that we just approved, that we used the racial equity lens, for the first time ever in the City of Dallas,” Councilmember Casey Thomas said.

Undesign the Redline is a national, traveling art and design exhibit created by designing the WE, a for-benefit design studio based in New York. Undesign the Redline includes a diverse, local community advisory board that helped localize the exhibit in a months-long project with City staff. The exhibit has previously been featured in several other major cities throughout the country and at Dallas City Hall, last year from October through December.
