CANCELED***Fair Housing Hot Topics!

Instructor: Shyle Ruder with Fair Housing Council of Oregon

Thursday May 18, 2023 6:30pm – 8:00pm

Come to this fair housing session to learn about the basics of fair housing and two very hot topics: assistance animals and housing assistance like section 8 vouchers and housing subsidies. Of reports of housing discrimination, 50% are related to disability and 2/3 of those cases are related to assistance animals.

Also, many housing providers don’t realize that discriminating against an applicant with a section 8 voucher is similar to discriminating against an applicant based on their race or religion. In this session we will discuss all of these topics and leave plenty of room for Q&A.

Continuing education credits: 1.5 CE Credits
