From Foreclosure to Fair Lending

Leaders of the nation's most prominent fair housing and fair lending advocacy organizations, labor and community organizers, activist scholars, and other specialists examine strategic initiatives for realizing the objectives of hte federal Fair Housing Act as well as state and local fair lending laws.
