Stanford University recently released a study sharing how bias affects not just people, but place.

This got me thinking just how much place matters. As NPR Codeswitch writer and podcaster Gene Demby often says, #housingsegregationineverything. Where we live not only affects culture and values, but is an instant determining factor in our access to nearly every resource and aspect of education.

I’m planning on writing more about this soon, but for those of us just beginning to dive into this subject, here’s a list of resources on how housing segregation affects education and access to other resources. Do you have more? I’d love to increase my own knowledge!

Again, I’d love to share/add more resources to this, so please leave anything more in the comments or send them my way!
