I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Systemic Racism and the Housing Crisis

“Institutional and Structural Racism impact black people experiencing homelessness on a daily, life-long basis, from renting an apartment to seeking employment, to the trauma of living in an anti-black society.”
Homelessness not only a result of lack of housing. It is a result of decades of broken and racist systems. Housing discrimination, income inequality, disparities in the justice system, generational poverty, and lack of access to opportunity have led us to this unacceptable truth: Black people are 4x more likely to experience homelessness than other groups.
In the San Gabriel Valley, 3.7% of the population is Black while 23% of people experiencing homelessness are Black; 49% of those experiencing homelessness in the region are Latinx.
Housing and public policies have excluded black and brown people and created disparities in wealth and housing access in our community. We’ll discuss the impact of these policies in the San Gabriel Valley, and explore strategies to dismantle structural racism and expand housing access for all.
JOIN US FOR A DYNAMIC DISCUSSION WHERE WE WILL EXPLORE:
  • What is the impact of these policies on the housing crisis in the San Gabriel Valley?
  • What is Union Station doing to demand housing equity for all?
  • What can you do as a community member to be a catalyst for change?
