Renee Brown, Director of Education and Associate Curator at Palm Springs Historical Society, will discuss the barriers that keep many people from obtaining what is commonly referred to as the “American Dream.” 

Historically in Palm Springs, these barriers have included income, race, religion, gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation injustices. Brown’s timeline will illustrate the complex layers of decisions made by federal, state, and local governments as well as by the people of a sovereign nation, the Cahuilla Indians and the effects those decisions had on the development of the City of Palm Springs.
