Webinar: Building on the Past to Prepare for the Future
Fair Housing Month is a great opportunity to celebrate the anniversary of the 1968 Fair Housing Act’s passage and reflect on what still needs to be done to fully realize the law’s stated goals of eliminating housing discrimination and residential segregation. As part of this reflection, the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) is hosting a virtual event during which experts will explore how past fair housing actions can help inform how we move forward to address longstanding and emerging issues, such as discrimination based on race or disability and algorithmic bias, that impede fair housing access. Below is an overview of the agenda.
