Month: January 2017
Have you experienced any of the following examples of housing discrimination?
- Being refused the right to rent or buy a house based on your disability, race, religion, color, national origin, gender, or familial status (children)
- A landlord told you a house/apartment was unavailable when it in fact was available and continued to be advertised
- OR, being refused to have a support or service animal in your house/apartment.
These are just a few of discriminatory behaviors protected under the Fair Housing Act.
To learn more join Marlene Robinson, Regional Fair Housing Specialist, at the Center for Independent Living, 601-3 East Brockway Ave, Morgantown on January 18 beginning at 6 p.m for an Open House Forum.
