Designing the WE (DtW) is a design studio that has worked with local residents in cities across the country to bring Undesign the Redline to their community, since 2015. Co-founder Braden Crooks and his team help guide the project, conduct research to find and present stories of housing discrimination in each city, contribute programming ideas, and create and install the exhibit in each location.
