Breaking Down Barriers to Affordable Housing Through Dialogue

Two Case Studies from the Chicago Area

Project Lead:


Rory Gates, Isabella Faro, Xavior Lewis, Emily Young


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.
