Redlining in Richmond: HOME v. Nationwide is a landmark case that tells the story of how a small fair housing organization took on one of the largest companies in the homeowners’ insurance industry for redlining African-American neighborhoods, and won the case. The resulting benefits were two-fold: discriminatory practices were held to be legally and morally wrong and also proven to be harmful for the industry's profitability. Because of this case, urban residents with the potential to be good customers now have increased access to homeowners' insurance, and the industry has reaped the benefits of expanding their business into new markets.
