Created by the Othering and Belonging Institute, UC Berkeley
Given the seriousness of the problem of racial segregation as a cause of racial inequality and the complexities in understanding the nature of this problem, the Othering and Belonging Institute launched a series of briefs to help illuminate these patterns and demystify the reality of segregation in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The report is presented as a series of briefs:
- Part 1: Segregation
- Part 2: Demographics
- Part 3: Measuring Segregation
- Part 4: The Harmful Effects of Segregation
- Part 5: Remedies, Solutions, Targets
- Zoning Report: Characteristics of Exclusionary Communities
- Decoding Zoning: Regulation and Reform in California
- Addendum: The Most Segregated Cities in the Bay Area
- A History of Racially Exclusionary Housing in the Bay Area
The Othering and Belonging Institute (OBI) at UC Berkeley brings together a diverse set of actors — including researchers, organizers, stakeholders and policymakers — to identify and eliminate the barriers to an inclusive, just and sustainable society in order to create transformative change.
