Airbnb Limiting Use Of Travelers' Names In Oregon Anti-Racism Experiment

(San Francisco, CA) -- Airbnb will soon block hosts in Oregon from seeing prospective guests' full names, in an anti-racism experiment. For two years, beginning January 31st, Oregon landlords offering houses and apartments on the popular short-term rental website will initially see only guests' first initials. Full names won't appear until after the booking is confirmed. The experiment Airbnb announced Tuesday is aimed at curbing discrimination against Black travelers.
