The Skokie Plan, 1965-1966

These two documents detail the creation and history of the Skokie Plan. The Skokie Plan was created by the Skokie Human Relations Commission (SHRC) to discourage home sellers and real estate agents from discriminating against people of color without passing any fair housing legislation. Raising public awareness of the importance of integration and dispelling myths around property values and crime rates were key aspects of the Skokie Plan.
