NCSG’s associate director Dr. Nick Finio was quoted in a recent article from the Baltimore Banner, “Report: ‘Creeping segregation’ in Columbia, originally envisioned as model of racial integration.”
From the article: “The report, published last week by the National Community Reinvestment Coalition, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit, called for leaders to make the community a more affordable place to live ‘so that Columbia really can once again be an example for the entire country in diversity and opportunity.'”
Speaking about income and racial segregation, Finio said a similar trend is taking place across central Maryland and in other parts of the country, in part due to a failure to integrate housing types within suburban communities.
