Housing Matters Summer 2020 Newsletter
Check out our Summer 2020 Newsletter, focusing on racial inequities in housing.
Our newsletters normally share the exciting things that your support of Housing Matters has recently made possible. Today, that doesn’t feel like enough.
We’re dedicating this newsletter to taking a look — albeit brief — at how inequities in housing have been created by systemic and institutionalized racism, and how those inequities have contributed to the extreme racial imbalances we see in our country today.
