"This American Life" featuring Nikole's fair housing work aired. Called "House Rules," the show demonstrated how zip code determines opportunity and detailed Nikole's investigation into the federal government's pitiful history of enforcing the Fair Housing Act.
Nikole gave a plenary, "No More Free Rides: Lessons from Westchester," at the Delaware Dept. of Human Relations fair housing symposium.
Hear Nikole discuss her reporting on what the Abigail Fisher v. University of Texas affirmative action case before the Supreme Court is really about. Hint: It's not about Fisher losing her spot to an unqualified black or Latino applicant.
Nikole joins host Leonard Lopate, Fred Freiberg, Executive Director of the Fair Housing Justice Center, and Betsy Julian, former Housing and Urban Development executive, to discuss why the 1968 Fair Housing Act, which was supposed to help integrate cities, has gone largely unenforced.
