The Still Segregated City: Exploring Residential Segregation in Boston, MA
Join us and the Boston Indicators to discuss the history of residential segregation in the city of Boston, and its continued impact throughout its neighborhoods and on its residents. In this discussion, we will have newly released data describing the pattern of residential segregation exacerbated by federal and state policies, its effects on the homeownership and rental market, and discuss potential policy solutions to help alleviate the problem.
