Applying a Racial Equity Lens to Housing Policy Analysis

By Gabriella Velasco & Martha Fedorowicz

In June, the Housing Matters editorial team, spurred by the national uprisings against police brutality and anti-Black structural racism, and the uneven effects of COVID-19 pledged a renewed commitment to racial equity. To manifest this promise, we committed to “reexamine evidence and assumptions in order to advance antiracist housing policy and practice,” and as a first step, we are reviewing five years of Housing Matters content to identify gaps and shortcomings in the work we’ve featured. In our role as research translators, we aim to arm our readers with the research and policy analysis necessary to advance antiracist housing policy and practice in communities and governments across the US.
