Why are underinvested communities underinvested? Adam Walls shares the history of laws preventing investment in certain neighborhoods of Chicago and his idea of how we can invest in underinvested communities.

Adam Walls is founder and CEO of the 5812 Group, a Chicago-based real estate investment company that specializes in affordable housing. Adam has a simple but bold way to tackle housing issues in under-resourced communities, using market-motivated investors and harnessing his passion for community.
