Open Communities with Mary Ellen Ball

Ilene and Scott travel to Evanston to meet with Mary Ellen Ball – Executive Director of Open Communities. 

Open Communities seeks to eradicate housing discrimination, in all of its forms, and against all persons, because of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, sex, disability, familial status, or source of income. 

We cover what the organization does in Skokie and surrounding communities in this week’s episode.
