FEATURING JENNIFER E. COSSYLEON – President Joe Biden on Tuesday signed a series of executive orders intended to address racial injustice in many realms including housing. In remarks delivered at the White House he said, “Housing is a right in America,” and that he was, “directing the Department of Housing and Urban Affairs — and Urban Development to redress historical racism in federal housing policies.”
Coinciding with Biden’s actions, the organization Community Change has just released its “Housing Playbook’s New Deal for Housing Justice,” intended as a, “blueprint for achieving racial equity in housing policy within the first 200 days of the new administration and Congress.”
