Not even a pandemic can break rich cities’ grip on the U.S. economy
By Hamza Shaban
October 15, 2020 in The Washington Post
Excerpt: "In D.C. and its suburbs, the pandemic has fueled a real estate boom as families yearn for more space and younger professionals look to upgrade. Though the rate of millennial workers moving to the metro area was slowing even before the outbreak, its entertainment venues, cultural activities, restaurants, outdoor spaces and public transit tend to attract a highly educated and skilled workforce, despite the high cost of living, said Derek Hyra, a professor at American University and the head of the school’s Metropolitan Policy Center."

Biden Announces $775 Billion Plan to Help Working Parents and Caregivers
By Claire Cain Miller, Shane Goldmacher, and Thomas Kaplan
July 21, 2020 in The New York Times

Is “Urban Flight” Happening?
By Jessica R. Towhey
July 21, 2020 in The Mortgage Note
Excerpt: "Even if there was a mass migration out of cities, an American University professor said it’s likely that a vaccine and an economic recovery would lead to people moving back to the urban areas. 'The urban equation has shifted,' said Derek Hyra, a professor in the school’s Department of Public Administration and Policy. 'It was mass amenities for small, expensive square footage, and that works for people for a long time. That’s not necessarily the case anymore.'"

A Rush to Use Black Art Leaves the Artists Feeling Used
By Tiffany Hsu and Sandra E. Garcia
July 20, 2020 in The New York Times
Excerpt: "'This is the current issue of the day,' said Sonya Grier, a marketing professor at American University. 'It has become almost standard for companies to jump in, because everyone expects them to have some kind of social presence explaining how they align on race.'"

Kids' school schedules have never matched parents' work obligations and the pandemic is making things worse
By Taryn Morrissey
July 15, 2020 in Houston Chronicle
Excerpt: "Whether I’m looking at the question of why it has always been hard to be a working parent in the United States as a mother with two children under 7, or as a scholar of child and family policy, one reason stands out. The hours employers demand and public school schedules have always been incompatible."

10 Most Popular Cities For Millennial Homebuyers Right Now
By Natalie Campisi
July 15, 2020 in Forbes
Excerpt: "'During the early days of COVID in places like New York City, you saw affluent people going to their second homes, leaving for Long Island. And then there are those people with kids who have to get in an elevator to go to a crowded park, they just want a backyard,' says Derek Hyra, a professor at American University in Washington, D.C., where he focuses on neighborhood change. 'Naturally, we question if these people are truly going to leave the city. Once we get a vaccine, will they come back? These are questions that have yet to be answered.'"

Defunding the Police is an Immigrants’ Rights Issue, Too
By Ernesto Castañeda
July 6, 2020 in Medium
Excerpt: "Integration does not just happen — it is dependent on local context, public policy, and the sociocultural environment someone hails from. The ever-increasing funds given to police forces and ICE could be used to actually craft these local environments and enact pro-integration policy."

"He still sees us as property, as labor." Big report on the background of the protests in divided America
By Jan Kaliba
July 5, 2020 in iROZHLAS
Excerpt: "'We can certainly say that the unequal treatment of suspects we are witnessing today is partly related to the way African Americans have been treated here for centuries. To justify slavery, the United States had to dehumanize black people, fear them, and say they were not as intelligent as whites,' Hyra explains."

AU professor’s report shows the daily racial disparities among D.C. residents
By Eliza Schloss
July 1, 2020 in The Eagle
Excerpt: "'These challenges are so complex that they will not likely be solved through any single interdisciplinary lens,' Hyra said. 'Nor will, a single inner scope disciplinary lens, be sufficient and enough to understand the complexities of the world. So, to bring together people in sociology, public policy, anthropology, business and communication is really important because people are trained to look at problems in different ways.'"

Black Families Were Hit Hard by the Pandemic. The Effects on Children May Be Lasting.
By Kelly Glass
June 29, 2020 in The New York Times
Excerpt: "'The Covid-19 public health and economic crisis certainly is hitting deep within the economy, and it’s affecting every single type of American,” said Bradley L. Hardy, associate professor of public administration and policy at American University. Though many families will certainly feel the stress, “We have some real concerns for Black families for a whole range of historical reasons,' he said."

By Cyril Julien
June 23, 2020 in The Jakarta Post

Police reforms helped bring peace to Northern Ireland
By Kimberly Cowell-Meyers and Carolyn Gallaher
June 18, 2020 in The Washington Post
Excerpt: "U.S. police officers kill a remarkable number of their fellow citizens every year, particularly African Americans and other minorities — many with their hands in the air, their backs turned or their bodies on the ground. Holding those officers accountable has been difficult because of rank-and-file codes of silence, powerful police unions and lax oversight by officials in charge of policing."

Column: The Aunt Jemima brand, rooted in slavery, was in fact ‘selling whiteness’
By David Lazarus
June 17, 2020 in Los Angeles Times
Excerpt: "'Once something is seen as normative, it’s typically not questioned and taken for granted,' said Sonya Grier, a marketing professor at American University. 'Like fish in water. And this would allow such stereotypes to be perpetuated consciously or unconsciously in society.'"

The High Cost of Panic-Moving
By Amanda Mull
June 15, 2020 in The Atlantic
Excerpt: "By all indications, this second group of movers is far larger than those who have abruptly decided to flee. “There was this movement already of people starting to move out of the high-cost cities like San Francisco, New York, and Washington, D.C.,” Derek Hyra, a demographer at American University and the head of the school’s Metropolitan Policy Center, told me. Cities such as Atlanta, Georgia; Austin, Texas; and Nashville, Tennessee have picked up significant population gains because of their relatively affordable real-estate markets, Hyra said, ripe for house flipping and gentrification."

MSNBC Daily
June 12, 2020 in MSNBC

Betsey Stevenson also joins."

Coronavirus Obliterated Best African-American Job Market on Record
By Eric Morath and Amara Omeokwe
June 9, 2020 in Market Screener
Excerpt: "The disease itself also hit African-Americans harder, medically and financially, in part because of longstanding inequities such as a lack of access to medical care and disproportionate representation in less secure low-wage jobs, said Bradley Hardy, an economist at American University. 'These protests are also a response to broader insecurity in these communities,' he said."

Behind virus and protests: A chronic US economic racial gap
By Paul Wiseman
June 9, 2020 in Stamford Advocate
Excerpt: "Bradley Hardy, a professor in American University’s School of Public Affairs, said that researchers and activists are working on plans like Booker’s to narrow the divide between black and white Americans, between rich and poor."

What it means to be anti-racist
By Anna North
June 3, 2020 in Vox
Excerpt: "The idea of anti-racism has been getting a lot of attention in recent days as Americans around the country rise up against police violence. But the idea is far from new, with roots in decades of civil rights work by black Americans, said Malini Ranganathan, a faculty team lead at the Antiracist Research and Policy Center."

By Rob Garver

By Reid Wilson
June 1, 2020 in The Hill

AU report outlines racial disparities in the Washington region
By Marissa J. Lang
May 29, 2020 in The Washington Post
Excerpt: "The report — which zeroes in on facets of daily life, such as shopping, talking with neighbors, sending kids to after-school programs, dealing with government agencies or encountering police — captures how even the most mundane parts of life can be shaped by racism and inequity, said Michael Bader, associate director of AU’s Metropolitan Policy Center, which oversaw the study."

New American University Survey Reveals Influence of Race in D.C.-Area Residents’ Lives
Press Release
May 27, 2020 in The Line DC
Excerpt: "The coronavirus pandemic lays bare racial disparities in health, with people of color being disproportionately affected,” said Michael Bader, associate director of AU’s Metropolitan Policy Center and primary author of the report. “It can be paralyzing to think about how to address big, structural differences in health, wealth, employment and housing. Our report shows that daily life experiences of racial disparities matter and should be addressed by policymakers. Focusing on neighborhoods to address disparities of daily experiences can be a meaningful first step to reducing inequalities."

Gentrification in DC isn’t just a black and white issue
By Alex Baca, Nick Fino
May 25, 2020 in Greater Greater Washington
Excerpt: "This decade, framing DC’s gentrification as a black-white issue has been employed extensively in scholarship and in the media, perhaps best exemplified by Derek Hyra’s 2017 book Cappuccino City. We think that this binary frame, which informs debates on issues ranging from zoning and displacement to bike lanes and churches could benefit from an injection of nuance — and maps!"

Yahoo Finance Video
May 11, 2020 in Yahoo News
Excerpt: "I spoke to Brookings Institution Senior Fellow Bradley Hardy and he actually made the case back in March for monthly stimulus checks. He said it's absolutely necessary at this point because Americans need consistent liquidity. He also said that there is a cost to inaction and that's what we're seeing laid out in the labor market."

By Hannah Natanson

Excerpt: "Michael Bader, an American University associate professor who studies cities and neighborhoods, said he’s heard of grandparents moving into their children’s homes to survive the pandemic, or caregivers choosing to live with clients to minimize risk.

By Ryan Felton

By Anna North

By Bailey Schulz
