Ethical (i.e LEGAL) Housing Listings
From Jascha, at the City of Boston:
  • An idea:
  • I was talking to Janine Anzalota in our Fair Housing office about data mining. She mentioned the idea of scraping online real estate listings for discriminatory language (e.g. "no kids") and having a system to allow a quick response w/ a message about housing discrimination and links to things like financial support for deleading. 
 
We need a project lead!
