CRC Responds to Supreme Court Decision on Disparate Impact

In response to the Supreme Court’s decision about disparate impact announced earlier today,Paulina Gonzalez,executive director of the California Reinvestment Coalition, released this statement:

“The California Reinvestment Coalition applauds today’s Supreme Court decision upholding long established tools for enforcing the Fair Housing Act. All of California benefits when everyone has equal and fair access to housing, jobs, credit, educational and other opportunities. While we may have made progress over the past decades, as the court notes, “Much progress remains to be made in our Nation’s continuing struggle against racial isolation.” Today’s decision is a stop forward in fostering inclusive and thriving communities in our state,and in the nation.”
