Research Director Elizabeth Kneebone Quoted in CityLab on Suburbs

Bloomberg CityLab article quotes from a piece that our Research Director Elizabeth Kneebone authored on the Trump administration’s mischaracterization of the suburbs:

“Within the vast swath of American land that is vaguely defined as the suburbs, racial and ethnic groups remain separated. “That sorting did not happen ‘organically.’ It’s the product of exclusionary zoning and land use regulations as well as arduous development processes adopted by local officials and communities,” Kneebone explains. “These practices have allowed certain jurisdictions and neighborhoods to hoard wealth and opportunity, fueling racial and economic segregation and creating disparities not only between suburbs and cities but also within suburbia as well.””
