Current Projects

PRRAC is actively engaged in research and advocacy on the racial impacts of Federal policy in the areas of housing, education, and health. We place a particular emphasis on the mechanisms of racial and economic segregation, and the effects of racial isolation on education, health outcomes, and incarceration.
