On Sept. 8, months after battling intense scrutiny and criticism of its efforts to combat discrimination on its online platform, Airbnb announced several changes to its policies and platform in an attempt to make it more difficult for hosts to discriminate against guests on the basis of race, sex, gender identity, religion, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, or age.

The San Francisco-based company released the details of its new policies in a 32-page report authored by Laura W. Murphy, the former director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s legislative office in Washington, D.C. and a former director of tourism for the District of Columbia.
