Fair housing laws can mandate change. But they must also take into account historic discrimination in real estate and banking, and other ways people of color have been disadvantaged.
Last week a group of public policy makers and advocates gathered at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco to learn about new fair housing laws that went into effect this year in California.
The meeting was hosted by the Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiative and the nonprofit law firm Public Advocates. Pamela Lorence went to find out about these new laws and what they mean for local governments in the Bay Area.
