La vivienda, el comienzo del "Sueño Americano" es la forma más grande de la riqueza privada sostenida por familias a lo largo de los Estados Unidos. Esta Gráfica informativa dibuja la atención a la intersección de la vivienda tanto como un derecho humano reconocido globalmente asi como una comodidad en un mercado existente global controlado por los mas ricos. Nosotros pedimos a los lectores el reconocimiento a la historia detrás de la larga división de la riqueza racial y considerar el entre juego entre las políticas de la vivienda federal y las prácticas financieras riesgosas y su impacto sobre la división.

Housing, a cornerstone of the "American Dream," is the largest form of privately wealth held by families across the United States. This infographic draws attention to the intersection of housing as both a globally-recognized human right and as a commodity in a global stock market controlled by the wealthy. We urge readers to acknowledge the history behind the long-standing racial wealth divide and to consider the interplay between federal housing policies and risky financial practices and their impacts on the divide.
