Why is Fair Housing in Chicago Still an Issue in 2014?

morningamp:

It does feel like, sometimes, it’s a very daunting task to try and deal with the issue of equity and housing and opportunity all in one big full swoop. The big issue is that housing is really the last thing that we’ve been able as a society to figure out how to integrate. We’ve seen schools that are more integrated, and at the college level, people work in more integrated environments, when we go out to eat we’re in more integrated environments than we used to be. But housing is really this last frontier. The other part about it is that housing is really the linchpin in trying to create equity throughout the region. The fact that we live in these segregated neighborhoods and communities - that’s the geography of equality and inequality.” 
-Rob Breymaier, President of the Chicago Fair Housing Alliance

A new report from theChicago Fair Housing Alliance looks at how segregation affects our daily lives in the city from education to crime to quality of life. Executive Director Morgan Davis and PresidentRob Breymaier joined the AMp hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams this morning and discussed some of their proposed solutions for these problems.
