This service-learning class focuses on a significant and far reaching federal policy, The Fair Housing Act, as a springboard to explore many facets of urban life and policy including, but not limited to, housing, education, health, immigration, zoning, transportation, food security, voting and predatory lending. With this foundation, the second half of the semester focuses on a project with the Massachusetts Fair Housing Center (MFHC) in Holyoke. MFHC will use our work to inform their fair housing program.
