In this special Fair Housing Month episode of the Holistic Housing Show, Laura and Sarah are joined by Heather Crislip, President & CEO, and Monica Jefferson, Vice President & COO, of HOME of Virginia. HOME fulfills its mission to ensure equal access to housing for all people by addressing housing discrimination in all its forms. Heather and Monica share what housing discrimination looks like – including the still-prevalent practice of redlining - and HOME’s role in a significant legal case that changed the insurance industry. Plus, Laura and Sarah tease not nearly enough information about the impending arrival of their new co-host, learn what the term “fintech” means, and everyone shares their opinion on mashed potatoes. Listen carefully, and you’ll hear a new special question debuted at the end!
Also mentioned in this episode: National Fair Housing Alliance; The Color of Law; Spoonbread Restaurant (thanks for the recommendation, Monica!)
