ABA Journal of Affordable Housing and Community Development Law

It is fitting to see the American Bar Association’s Journal of Affordable Housing and Community Development publish this collection of articles in time for Fair Housing Month. In part because we’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of the death of George Floyd, May 25th of 2020. The video of his killing triggered worldwide protests and a continuing period of acknowledging the treatment of BIPOC populations in law enforcement, corrections, employment, education and housing.
