Virtual Brown Bag: Housing Discrimination in the Bay Area
As Habitat Greater San Francisco prepares to build in San Francisco, Redwood City, and Daly City in the coming years, we are reminded yet again of the severity of the housing crisis in the Bay Area and its impact on thousands of families and their children.
The Bay Area faces challenges specific to our region, from land constraints and the booming cost of new construction to the exorbitant increases in home prices year after year. But we rarely discuss the decades of housing discrimination that have systemically barred the path to homeownership for certain groups, mainly low-income people of color. They have been explicitly denied access of opportunity to the American Dream—directly contributing to wealth, health, and other quality-of-life inequities drawn along lines of race and class.
Join us for an hour-long webinar as we discuss the historical legacy that underpins all our work in affordable homeownership, neighborhood revitalization, and housing justice advocacy—and which will define our future trajectory.
