On Tuesday July 30, the Fair Housing Justice Center (FHJC) will be hosting another in their series of free webinars entitled Accessible Housing: A Civil Right.

This webinar is being offered to increase awareness of accessibility laws and regulations, and to help ensure that new buildings are designed and constructed correctly right from the start. Architects, builders, contractors, building engineers, real estate professionals, attorneys, government officials, disability rights advocates, and others will be provided with detailed and reliable information about federal fair housing accessibility requirements.

Instruction at the workshop will be provided by two nationally known experts on housing accessibility: Attorney Scott P. Moore is one of the nation’s leading legal experts on design and construction requirements under the Federal Fair Housing Act. Larry Fleming is an architect and consultant on accessibility issues with decades of experience in the field, excellent knowledge of accessibility laws and standards, and considerable practical experience. They will be joined by Elizabeth Grossman, the FHJC’s Executive Director/General Counsel, who will discuss the role of the FHJC and recent FHJC litigation.

The workshop will take place Tuesday, July 30 from 1:00 – 4:00 PM. There is no fee to attend, but advanced registration is required. Click HERE  or visit bit.ly/FHJCWebinarJuly30 to learn more and to register.

The FHJC is listed by The NY State Board of Architecture as an approved provider of continuing education for architects licensed in New York. As such, this course meets one of the three criteria for it to be found acceptable towards New York’s continuing education requirements for architects. However, it is up to the licensee to determine if this course meets all three of the requirements.

The FHJC’s application to The New York State Continuing Legal Education Board for accreditation of this webinar is pending.
