League for the Blind and Disabled, the Fort Wayne Metropolitan Human Relations Commission, and the Back Home in Indiana Alliance are pleased to celebrate National Fair Housing Month with the workshop:
Beyond the Basics: Fair Housing and Rental Transactions
with Amy Nelson, Executive Director, Fair Housing Center of Central Indiana

At this two hour workshop, learn about the important fair housing topics as they relate to rental transactions. Discussion points will include new fair housing case law, guidance, and regulations as they relate to protections from housing discrimination for persons with disabilities, families with children, due to gender (including sexual harassment and situations of domestic violence), national origin (including Limited English proficiency guidance, LGBT guidance and housing discrimination as it relates to race and color.)

Who should attend? Rental housing tenants, owners and managers; Housing Authority staff & Resident Council members; advocates, government funders & social service coordinators - Whatever your role, you must be familiar with the federal Fair Housing Act as well as state and local fair housing laws. This knowledge is not only critical to prevent costly violations; it also promotes good business practices and can strengthen community inclusiveness.
