Our Policy Work will highlight barriers, systemic issues, or community policies that pose particular challenges for communities seeking to redress racial inequities in housing. Whether the topic is a Policy Brief or a bi-monthly Policy Discussion Group, the Center creates a space for open conversation around issues that need working solutions.
