@ANHD “In housing, they are being condensed, contained, and compartmentalized in the housing market. They are becoming a shrinking share and shrinking portion. We are losing out on affordability that specifically speaks to the Black population.” - @barikaXw

@ANHD The pioneers in this space were nonprofits who found a way to make affordable housing happen when the market failed to do so, said @barikaXw. One such organization, @BSRC, became the first CDC in the US located here in #Bedstuy and took matters into its own hands. https://t.co/gyK1RhvTxg

@ANHD Signature Bank’s closure is an opportunity for financial institutions & regulators to revisit + reexamine existing practices. Regulators must #FixCRA & make it race-conscious; value community input; capable of downgrading banks who lend 2 landlords that harm and displace tenants. https://t.co/GljPzETIwD

@ANHD ANHD applauds @NYDFS for taking the significant and necessary steps to close Signature Bank. Our low-income communities of color should not bear the price of financial institutions' misguided, ill-informed, profit-only practices.
