Fair Housing

In an unexpected decision last month, the Supreme Court ruled that even unintentional discrimination in housing is illegal, potentially setting up future court battles over “workforce housing,” or affordable housing in suburban areas across the country. We hear from fair housing advocates about Maryland’s efforts to combat exclusionary practices and provide mixed-income housing in both Baltimore and its suburbs. Guests: Dan Pontious, housing policy coordinator for the Opportunity Collaborative of the Baltimore Metropolitan Council; Stefanie DeLuca, sociologist at Johns Hopkins.
