The Urban Displacement Project (UDP) at UC Berkeley was recently featured on KPIX’s Project Home series, which profiles individuals affected by the affordable housing crisis and looks at regional approaches to combating the crisis in the Bay Area.
In this segment, Project Home looks at how the housing affordability crisis, rooted in systemic discrimination, is spurring resegregation in communities around the Bay Area. Karen Chapple, Director of UDP and Chair and Professor of the Department of City & Regional Planning, discusses how her team is mapping out how cities are becoming more exclusionary, meaning that rents are so high that low-income people are excluded from moving in, resulting in ongoing displacement. Social services stay in core cities, leaving those living in segregated low-income areas without access to these resources and creating a rippling effect of disadvantage for communities of color.
