Voices of the Heights: A Conversation with Suzanne Nigro, Avery Friedman & Kathryn Eloff
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Heights Community Congress invites you to join this conversation with Suzanne Nigro, Avery Friedman & Kathryn Eloff as we look back to be inspired for the work ahead of us. How “FAIR” was the Cleveland Heights housing market after the passage of the Fair Housing Act in 1968? Was it an “even playing field”?

In 1972, local housing activists noticed little had changed and took their fight for justice to Federal Court. Winning the “Hilltop Realty Case” changed the face of housing in Cleveland Heights and demonstrated the power of involved citizens.

“Voices of the Heights” is a video project spearheaded by Heights Community Congress, a plaintiff in the Hilltop Realty Case, to document the historical voices of the Heights that have brought our community together.

Participants in the lawsuit—housing activist and lawyer Suzanne Nigro, 2nd chair attorney on the case Kathryn Eloff, and noted civil rights lawyer Avery Friedman—will be interviewed by a Cleveland Heights High School student. Cameras will roll as they talk about the Hilltop Realty case and share their memories of the challenges Fair Housing advocates faced in the 70s.

As our nation continues to be divided, it's never been more important to reflect upon the values of tolerance and justice that have grounded us. This program will be videotaped live before a studio audience. Let your voice be heard!

This event is FREE and open to the public.
