How "greenlining" can address the effects of redlining

A local organization is leading a collaborative approach to help first-time homebuyers of color access homes.

The Greenlining Coalition through Action for a Better Community (ABC) brings together banks and realtors in an effort to close the racial wealth gap and address redlining in the community.

This hour, we discuss group's work and its impact. We also preview ABC’s upcoming community event celebrating 60 years of collaborative work.
