July 20, 2022 – Suzanne Dershowitz, staff attorney at Public Advocates, was quoted in a Market Watch article by Joy Wiltermuth, about how  buying a first house could get much harder for middle-income, and especially lower-income households.

Suzanne Dershowitz, a staff attorney at Public Advocates, said that while the affordability crisis isn’t new, “We are seeing consolidation of massive profits in the hands of a few, at the expense of communities of color.” The nonprofit California law firm and advocacy group focuses on housing, education and climate justice for low-income communities and people of color. “What all this data shows is that our housing policies need to treat housing as a basic human need,” she said by phone. “Government regulation needs to focus on people, rather than housing as a commodity.”
