New This Week:

The Color of Power

Some cities -- such as Chicago -- have power structures that give local officials veto power over the siting of affordable housing. This arrangement maintains racial segregation of residential housing. In their new Clearinghouse article, Kate Walz and Patricia Fron explain how these power dynamics work and what advocates can do to disrupt the structures that maintain racial segregation in housing. Read more.

Kate and Patricia will take your questions on this topic in the next Advocacy Exchange, Wednesday, October 24 at 1:00 EDT/10:00 PDT. Learn more and register.
