Prof. Myron Orfield, Jr. Quoted in Star Tribune about Affordable Housing 

Professor Myron Orfield, Jr. was part of a panel discussion about housing in the Twin Cities this week at the Hubert H. Humphrey School of Public Affairs in their ongoing series, the Mondale Dialogues. He was quoted in Evan Ramstad’s business column in the Star Tribune. In the panel discussion, it was discussed how, for several decades after the Fair Housing Act, Minnesota put integration first and incentivized new housing for lower-income families in the Twin Cities. But since the 1990s, “The state housing finance agency and the Met Council abandoned a lot of the strategies they used to use in the 1960s and 1970s,” Orfield said, adding that “it's resulted in an explosion of racial segregation.”
