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 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.

    A march to end murder: Victim's kin works to reduce deadly violence in Philadelphia
    The killer crashed into Daymond Garner's living room after midnight, blasting at least 14 shots at him as he lounged on the couch watching TV, in what police later called an "execution-style" ambush. Murder was such an unexpected fate for Garner, 29, that his grandmother, upstairs, thought the gunfire was firecrackers.
