Abstract

Sprawl and segregation are inextricably linked. Sprawl has been occurring on a grand scale in the United States for sixty years; but in the past ten or so years; politicians, the media, and the public have begun to take it seriously as a problem that needs solving. The Environmental Movement has been a vocal advocate of anti-sprawl measures, and has contributed significantly to the growing momentum of the Anti-Sprawl Movement. There is clearly an environmental interest in combating sprawl. This article considers the degree to which that interest aligns with desegregationist and fair housing interests.

Keywords: fair housing, sprawl, segregation, desegregation, environment, environmental movement, interest convergence
