Redlining… the shut-out.
Neighborhoods that were traditionally African American were not given home loans based on race. It’s the economic definition of an uneven playing field: a lack of access to capital. Social capital and racial justice is covered extensively in the Opportunity Task Force Report LeadingOnOpportunity.org.
BuyingItBack.com is the proposal to pool our resources to close the gap for the people who were shut out from the American Dream. Partnering our resources with targeted nonprofit investment closes the gap.
It’s the Cycle of Life.
Commercial development follows residential. Residential follows life. Gentrification is not malice.
It’s a Circuit-breaker.
Let’s invest in historic property to create a small business accelerator and wellness center to support neighbors as they create community, curb their own gentrification and maintain the character of their neighborhood in the future.
