Love Is Love, Home Is Home, Fair Is Fair: How the Fair Housing Act Protects People against Discrimination Based on Sex, Including Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity
Webinar: In the midst of the current hateful rhetoric that maligns the LGBTQAI+ community, it’s good to know that there is an important law, the Fair Housing Act, that protects people against housing discrimination based on sex, which includes discrimination because of one’s sexual orientation or gender identity. Join this webinar to improve your cultural competency with the LGBTQAI+ community, expand your understanding of the history and types of discrimination against those who are LGBTQAI+, and increase your knowledge about how LGBTQAI+ persons are protected by the federal Fair Housing Act and can take action when they experience discrimination in housing, lending, and related markets.
