Crystal and Mira, we are grappling with exactly the same questions in Richmond. The racially-based socioeconomic divide sounds similar to that of large cities in other parts of the US and like that in most cities of any size in the Southeast. I wonder if all of us in the Southeast are bumping into this particular version of the inclusion question.

I am reminded that you can't talk about housing without talking about race. Maybe cohousing isn't the place for social justice, but I think this movement for real community can do more than one thing at once. Below is a short article about housing in Charlotte. Our cohousing group was looking at the University City area for land--the same area where Keith Scott was murdered. This area is considered "up and coming" because land prices are low (read: minority population) but a new light rail line is being built. If this is not an opportunity for inclusion, I don't know what is. http://money.cnn.com/2016/09/22/news/economy/charlotte-economy/index.html Crystal Farmer Charlotte Cohousing Community
