[ARCHIVED] Fair Housing Training Workshop

City Press Release - Get Informed - Old Town Marketplace

Join housing consumers and advocates from around Southern Oregon for a training on Fair Housing Basics 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 9.

Presented by the Fair Housing Council of Oregon, this free training via Zoom is for those who want to learn more about housing discrimination and the protections afforded by the Fair Housing Act. Topics include a history overview, protected classes, red flags, and how to report housing discrimination and get support.

The Fair Housing Council of Oregon is a statewide civil rights organization whose mission is to eliminate housing discrimination through access to enforcement and education. They are a nonprofit corporation, not a governmental agency. They promote equal access to housing by providing education, outreach, technical assistance, and enforcement opportunities specifically related to federal, state, and local fair housing laws. 

"If you are supporting folks who are looking for housing, or are concerned about facing housing discrimination yourself, this training should be really applicable." said City of Grants Pass Grants Specialist Susan G. Clark.
