Over the past decade, HOME has used the data gathered from our research projects to create educational exhibits about the history of housing inequalities and fair housing.
Credit Inequality & Housing Access
May 2023 – August 2023
Credit Inequality & Housing Access examines how biased practices in credit and lending contribute to housing inequality and instability. During spring 2023, the exhibit toured libraries in Richmond city and Chesterfield County. At each of the four locations, HOME hosted discussions about the exhibit and the work we are doing to change the housing landscape in the region.
