The Lotus Campaign - Addressing Homelessness and Housing
The Lotus Campaign's co-founders have served on many Advisory Services panels.
Real estate policies and practices have entrenched racism and other social inequities in land use across the United States. The legacies of redlining, disinvestment, and environmental injustice continue to shape everything from residents’ health to economic opportunities. Black communities and communities of color have typically experienced the greatest degree of exclusion and marginalization, and so working toward social equity requires a focus on racial justice. In addition to racial injustices, a variety of other inequities exist and remain intertwined with the built environment. These include ability status, gender, socioeconomic status, and more, including their intersections.
As real estate and land use professionals seek to learn more about this history and work toward social equity, many resources are available. The Urban Land Institute has compiled a reading list of ULI publications focused on social equity. The below resources from other organizations complement this list, providing additional information and perspectives.
