An inspiring immigrant integration story from....Hazleton, PA?    Hazleton was "ground zero" for local anti-immigrant legislation a few years ago.  Read how quickly things are changing - and American values are beginning to prevail - in the latest story from One Nation Indivisible.   


The long-awaited HUD Housing Discrimination Study:   The decennial report from the Urban Institute for HUD finds continuing persistent racial discrimination in sale and rental markets, though in more subtle forms than in prior decades.  While the report's careful research methods may actually understate the prevalence of housing discrimination, it underscores the continuing importance of basic fair housing testing and enforcement work.  Read the lead author's blog post here.
