ACER is a member of the Equity in Place coalition, which challenged a Fair Housing complaint that alleged that the Twin Cities region was using federal housing funding to concentrate affordable housing in high-poverty communities. Over the past year, we asserted pressure to ensure the voices of communities of color will influence how federal housing funds are invested in the Twin Cities region. What we learned can benefit other organizers, advocates, and funders who are thinking about how to build power to create more equitable investments and outcomes for communities of color.
