What Does the History of Real Estate Discrimination Look Like in the San Francisco Bay Area and How Has it Discriminated Against Minorities?
The history of redlining and real estate discrimination in our country is a huge issue. Throughout history African Americans and other minorities have been denied fair realty services. The impacts of this are seen today through the achievement gap, health and access to healthy food, overall wealth, and diversity within communities. This project will highlight the effects that redlining continues to have decades later in the East/Palo Alto community as determined by an interview of a community member.
The AAR program is a unique opportunity for Palo Alto Unified School District students, in grades 10-12, to engage in original research in an area of their choosing. Students are paired with mentors who are experts in the field of the student's choosing.
