April is Fair Housing Month April is Fair Housing Month

April Is Fair Housing Month

Each April we come together as a community and as a nation to celebrate the anniversary of the passing of the Fair Housing Act. The Act was passed shortly after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination in 1968 in order to eliminate housing discrimination and create equal opportunity in every community.
To help celebrate this year, we are participating in two Fair Housing events:

2017 Fair Housing Symposium

During Fair Housing Month, the Northwest Indiana Reinvestment Alliance, along with its affiliates: the Lake County Housing Taskforce and the Northwest Indiana Bankers Community Council have partnered with the Continuum of Care of NWI to host the 2017 Housing Symposium.  This event will provide valuable resources for residents, landlords, not-for-profit organizations, realtors, local businesses, etc.

The theme for this year's conference is My Home, Your Home, Our Communities.  The symposium will be held on Thursday, April 27, 2017.
