Just Action: How to Challenge Segregation Enacted Under the Color of Law
Written by father and daughter Richard and Leah Rothstein, the newly released Just Action: How to Challenge Segregation Enacted Under the Color of Law builds on Richard’s 2017 book The Color of Law, which posited that racial segregation in housing is the result of federal, state, and local policies.
In a discussion of Just Action, Leah Rothstein looks further at that pernicious connection while also suggesting strategies and changes to policy that can be enacted at a local level to promote inclusive housing. Her presentation is livestreamed at youtube.com/kclibrary (no RSVP necessary).
Rothstein is a consultant for affordable housing developers and a union organizer in San Francisco.
