Just Deeds

In January of 2021, the New Hope City Council passed a resolution disavowing and condemning the past use of discriminatory covenants and prohibiting discriminatory covenants from being used in the future. While there are no known discriminatory covenants recorded for properties in New Hope, the city supports the efforts of neighboring cities to remove such covenants from property titles and it supports the efforts of the Just Deeds Coalition to educate the community about this and other historically discriminatory practices.
