A new paper, “From Redlining to Resilience: How Residential Segregation Molded the Work of Community-Based Organizations in Historically Black Communities,” explores the impact of redlining and other forms of institutional discrimination on the efforts of community-based organizations (CBOs) in formerly redlined neighborhoods. The paper proposes a definition of redlining and discusses its connections to the practices of equity-conscious CBOs, while also exploring whether current funding practices lead to optimal outcomes for these organizations. The paper finds that many organizations were developed by advocates and residents in response to neighborhood shocks and that for many organizations, limiting gentrification, maintaining affordability, and reducing displacement are key priorities.
