Join the Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition for a special “Pay What You Can” Virtual Walking Tour!

The Homeless Coalitions Social Justice Walking Tour focuses on the historical and contemporary struggles and successes of the Over-the-Rhine Peoples Movement. This virtual tour will use photography and storytelling to take you through the streets, alleys, and parks of the neighborhood and clarify the meaning and direction of decades of neglect and today’s investment. Learn and see for yourself what gentrification looks like and how displacement affects community members.

Cincinnati History

Housing Laws and Discrimination
