Dr. Stephen Sills, associate professor in the Department of Sociology, was interviewed by News 14 Carolina regarding fair housing conditions in the Piedmont.

The purpose of these evaluations is “to make sure that it also has equity, that people of color, sex, gender, national origin, disability status, marital status, etc., are all protected,” he said.

“That we don’t end up with one community that’s all white with high opportunity and another community that’s all people of color with low opportunity.”

The study will include a survey of 2,000 people in the neighborhoods where they live.
