From Redlining to Reinvestment

Gregory D. Squires

After decades of suffering redlining and disinvestment by financial institutions, many communities have learned to fight back successfully. In more than seventy U.S. cities, over 300 community-based organizations have negotiated at least eighteen billion dollars in reinvestment commitments in recent years. In original essays, well-known community activists and activist academics tell the stories of some of the most successful reinvestment campaigns in Boston, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Atlanta, and California.


"The gang's all here. Greg Squires has assembled...veterans of combat negotiation, and agreement with lenders.... These are the people who know what works and what doesn't." —Bill Dedman, author of the Pulitzer Prize-Winning series "The Color of Money," published by the Atlanta Journal/Constitution
