NPR’s This American Life Highlights Fair Housing

This American Life recently aired a show titled “House Rules“.

The piece focuses on the fair housing act, affirmatively furthering fair housing (including former Republican Governor of Michigan George Romney’s pro-integration role in fair housing), and why and how testing matters. Actual recordings from Fair Housing Justice Center testers are played.

Much of the shows content comes from ProPublica reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones, whose 2012 series “Living Apart: Fair Housing In America” has won several awards.

We encourage you to listen to this program- you can tune in now or download it for later.

From NPR: “Where you live is important. It can dictate quality of schools and hospitals, as well as things like cancer rates, unemployment, or whether the city repairs roads in your neighborhood. On this… show, stories about destiny by address.”
