Education

The Housing Center regularly conducts fair housing law seminars and events for landlords, property managers, real estate professionals, social workers, attorneys, government officials, newspaper publishers, and others. In addition, we conduct workshops for consumers on avoiding predatory lending.

Since 2005, the Housing Center has also conducted conferences and trainings on predatory lending, building accessible housing, disability rights, and legal and other strategies for addressing fair housing issues.

In addition, Housing Center employees have been invited to participate in a number of conferences, forums and panels on various aspects of fair housing and fair lending.
