Faculty Fellow, Thomas W. Sanchez, of the Urban Affairs and Planning Program in the School of Public and International Affairs has published a new book with Marc Brennan exploring planning and social equity.

American communities are changing fast: ethnic minority populations are growing, home ownership is falling, the number of people per household is going up, and salaries are going down.
