Redlining is an egregious form of discrimination in the real estate industry that has been proven to have long-term and devastating effects on communities.
From purposely denying loans to creditworthy applicants because of their race or place of residence, to strategically engineering entire neighborhoods in a way that perpetuates existing disparities, redlining is an insidious practice that not only perpetuates inequality but also undermines economic growth and opportunity.
It’s time for us to take a stand against redlining and fight for fair access to housing for everyone.
This means pushing for policy changes at the state and federal levels, as well as pressuring financial institutions to lend more responsibly.
Together we can make sure that everyone gets a fair shot at home ownership regardless of their background or where they live.
