Calling all Bronxites!

We have rescheduled the snow-canceled February 13 fair housing rights workshop. The new date is Thursday March 7 at 5:00 PM at the same location, the Highbridge Branch of the New York Public Library.

In this ridiculously tight housing market, conditions are ripe for landlords and other providers to deny housing to people who use vouchers, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ people, or anyone whose race, ethnicity, religion or familial status is not welcome in their building. It’s vital that we all have a full understanding of our fair housing rights.

The FHJC, with support from NY Homes and Community Renewal, is presenting a series of free workshops on fair housing rights and the fight to end housing discrimination.

The workshop will be led by FHJC Legal Coordinator Madhulika Murali, Intake and Outreach Director Indiana Santo, and Communications Coordinator Craig Waletzko. Topics will include housing discrimination basics, protected characteristics, closer looks at disability and source of income discrimination, and what to do if you experience housing discrimination. We’ll also share information about the FHJC and our work to eliminate housing discrimination and create open, inclusive, accessible communities for EVERYONE.

Location:
New York Public Library Highbridge Branch
78 West 168th Street
Bronx, NY 10452

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is strongly encouraged, but not required. Click HERE or visit bit.ly/kyfhrMar7 to register. Please forward this message to any organizations or individuals who might benefit from this important workshop.
