Banks are denying mortgages to people of color at a lopsided rate, a new national redlining report shows. And Philadelphia is the main case study.

1400 65th St., Suite 200

    For people of color, banks are shutting the door to homeownership
    Fifty years after the federal Fair Housing Act banned racial discrimination in lending, African Americans and Latinos continue to be routinely denied conventional mortgage loans at rates far higher than their white counterparts.

Philly families mourn their lost, make 9-mile March to End Homicide

When the gunman opened fire near 8th and Spring Garden streets, Phillips’ death was a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When the police began their investigation, Ferguson said “he laid out there for 45 minutes before he was actually discovered.”

Near Broad and Tioga streets, Taron Mitchell remembered his friend Mike Williams.

    Philly families mourn their lost, make 10-mile March to End Homicide
    Ferguson feels especially anxious about gun violence now, she said, and sees the ripple effects in her community. "Because the streets are unsafe, you feel like your family is unsafe," she said. "You're scared to walk the streets, you can't sit on your steps, you're scared to send your children to the store, so it affects everybody."

Philly nonprofit Erase the Rate addresses gun violence by empowering the community

It begins at 11:30 a.m. at 66th and Broad Street, a location is significant to Garner, since that’s where her cousin was killed. The procession will finish at the city’s morgue, which Garner said symbolizes where everyone affected by gun violence goes to say farewell to their murdered kin.

    Philly nonprofit Erase the Rate addresses gun violence by empowering the community
    After the Eagles won the Super Bowl, much of the city was in a celebratory mood. But some people were not. Count among that second group the relatives and loved ones of the six people reportedly shot - and one killed - over the course of that very night.
