“If you sought to advantage one group of Americans and disadvantage another, you could scarcely choose a more graceful method than housing discrimination. Housing determines access to transportation, green spaces, decent schools, decent food, decent jobs, and decent services. Housing affects your chances of being robbed and shot as well as your chances of being stopped and frisked. And housing discrimination is as quiet as it is deadly. It can be pursued through violence and terrorism, but it doesn’t need it. Housing discrimination is hard to detect, hard to prove, and hard to prosecute.”
Bring People Together
We will bring diverse stakeholders together to tackle the many issues affecting racial equity in housing. To do so, we identify allies who may not be usual partners and elevate the voices and concerns of residents and those with lived experiences.
Align & Act
We will establish a common foundation and shared understanding of the root causes of segregation and inequities in current policies. With all stakeholders at the table, we create new solutions with shared equitable outcomes in mind.
Connect & Support
We will connect resources, both human resources, such as real estate professionals, and financial resources, such as loan products and grant opportunities.
