In Just Action: How to Challenge Segregation Enacted Under the Color of Law, Richard Rothstein and his daughter and housing policy expert Leah Rothstein provide a solution driven blueprint for addressing the important issues of segregation and the resulting social problems throughout the United States raised in Richard Rothstein’s best seller, Color of Law.
Just Action explores ways local groups can form and learn about their region’s history and then offers dozens of policies and strategies they can pursue to improve resources in lower-income segregated areas, open up exclusive suburban neighborhoods to diversity, and improve housing opportunities everywhere. The Rothsteins present tangible action that concerned citizens and community leaders can take to finally challenge residential segregation, reversing the harm, and creating victories that might help remedy American’s proudly unconstitutional past.
