Mapping Racist Covenants

Mapping Racist Covenants

Thank you Dr. Jason R. Jurjevich of the University of Arizona.

We were honored to have played a small part in this grant.

The importance of housing equity cannot be overstated, as it lies at the heart of various social and economic challenges facing the United States. This issue is closely tied to historical and ongoing systemic racism, and it has far-reaching implications for individuals, communities, and society as a whole.

Why housing equity is crucial:

  • Historical Context: Housing inequity has deep historical roots in the United States. Policies such as redlining, racial covenants, and discriminatory lending practices were systematically used to segregate communities and deny housing opportunities to people of color. These practices have had long-lasting effects, perpetuating racial disparities in wealth, education, and overall well-being.
  • Along with economic stability, educational stability, access to health care, community development, and more!
