A report published last week by Oakland nonprofit Urban Habitat shows that the Bay Area is resegregating by race and class. In contrast to past patterns of “white flight” from city centers to suburbs, affluent residents are increasingly settling in the regional core, pushing-low income residents and communities of color to the suburban edges of the Bay Area. We talk with the author of the report about the population shift and its consequences, including unequal access to quality education, work opportunities and public transportation.
