The Fair Housing Justice Center (FHJC) will be hosting another webinar on accessibility requirements in design and construction on Thursday April 6 from 1PM – 4PM ET. This free webinar, entitled Accessible Housing: A Civil Right. will provide detailed and reliable information about federal fair housing accessibility requirements.

For architects, builders, and contractors, the information shared in this webinar will help ensure that new buildings are designed and constructed correctly right from the start. It will also provide essential learning for disability rights advocates, attorneys, and government officials to assist them in their work, and for real estate professionals and others who would benefit from detailed knowledge of accessibility rules and regulations.

The webinar will be led again by Attorney Scott P. Moore, one of the nation’s leading legal experts on design and construction requirements under the Federal Fair Housing Act, and Larry Fleming, an architect and consultant on accessibility issues with decades of experience in the field. Together, they will provide detailed information on the wide range of laws and regulations, and valuable insight into the ways they play out in the real world. They will be joined by Elizabeth Grossman, the FHJC’s Executive Director/General Counsel, who will discuss recent FHJC litigation.

For attorneys seeking Continuing Legal Education credits, application for New York accreditation of this course is currently pending. Once approved, the program will provide three CLE credits, two for Professional Practice and one for Diversity, Inclusion and Elimination of Bias.

The FHJC is also 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.

This event is made possible with funding from New York State Homes and Community Renewal.

The mission of the FHJC, a nonprofit civil rights organization, is to eliminate housing discrimination; promote policies and programs that foster open, accessible, and inclusive communities; and strengthen enforcement of fair housing laws in the New York City region.
