Despite being banned more than a half-century ago, the impacts of redlining — the act of refusing mortgages in and around predominantly Black neighborhoods — are still felt today. Its use, in tandem with other discriminatory practices, dramatically reduced opportunities for upward mobility and contributed significantly to California’s vast inequities. Today, the state’s Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) seeks to “combat housing discrimination, eliminate racial bias, undo historic patterns of segregation, and lift barriers that restrict access in order to foster inclusive communities and achieve racial equity, fair housing choice, and opportunity for all Californians.” Come hear about the work of HCD's Fair Housing Unit and how it is dismantling racist housing systems while promoting vibrant, inclusive and sustainable communities for all Californians.
