President Joe Biden’s Memorandum on Redressing Our Nation’s and the Federal Government’s History of Discriminatory Housing Practices, Policies

 

Memorandum For The Secretary Of Housing And Urban Development

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1.  Background and Policy.  Diverse and inclusive communities strengthen our democracy.  But our Nation’s history has been one of great struggle toward this ideal.  During the 20th century, Federal, State, and local governments systematically implemented racially discriminatory housing policies that contributed to segregated neighborhoods and inhibited equal opportunity and the chance to build wealth for Black, Latino, Asian American, and Pacific Islander, and Native American families, and other underserved communities. 

United States President Joe Biden.

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Advancing inclusion and belonging for people of all races, national origins, and ethnicities is critical to guaranteeing the safety and security of the American people.  During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, inflammatory and xenophobic rhetoric has put Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) persons, families, communities, and businesses at risk.
