HousingWire’s Editor in Chief Sarah Wheeler interviewed Danielle Samalin, CEO of Framework Homeownership, for the “Housing News” podcast. In the episode, Samalin discusses the importance of fair housing, and how homeowners can protect their biggest and most valuable investment toward wealth creation.
Here are some of our favorite clips from Samalin:
- “I was certainly among those who celebrated the significance of [Pres. Joe Biden’s] executive order, as this was the first time the federal government formally acknowledged the role it played in the history of housing discrimination in this country.”
- “Truly, the federal government did design and implement racial segregation programs under the New Deal, which had a lasting impact, from the 1930s through the 1960s, which provided a critical wealth-building foundation for future generations that non-white families simply did not have.”
- “I think that by articulating this so clearly, in that executive order, without defensiveness, it really does signal an openness to policy shift, and to new approaches that promote equitable wealth-building through homeownership.”
