2011 was the first year of significant decline in foreclosures since the housing collapse in 2007 - that's the good news.  The not-so-good news is that foreclosures of sub-prime mortages, marketed heavily to minoritiies, continue to rise.  In fact, according to a report by Housing Opportunities Made Equal (HOME), "...minority neighborhoods throughout the Commonwealth have experienced up to five times as many foreclosures as non-minority neighborhoods".  On the next Another View we'll talk with President and CEO of HOME, Heather Crislip, about housing disparity and discrimination in Virginia and what HOME is doing to fulfill its mission to "ensure equal access to housing for all people".  Join the conversation on Another View, Friday, January 17 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us live on this blog!
