Breaking Down Barriers to Affordable Housing Through Dialogue

Two Case Studies from the Chicago Area

Authors:

Rory Gates, Isabella Faro, Xavior Lewis, Emily Young

Abstract:

This study will add to our previous understanding by synthesizing accounts of how proponents of affordable housing respond to community intransigence. It will provide a framework for understanding how these activists counter opposition narratives based on concerns about property values and crime. It will further provide a blueprint for activists using existing community institutions to combat anti-integration sentiment.
