In Our Backyard: Why Everyone Should Care About Fair Housing

May 15, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm


symposiumProject Sentinel cordially invites you to join us in surveying our ‘shared backyard,’ and in working towards a better understanding of what the Fair Housing Laws are about, what they mean today, and how we can make change in our communities.

The Fair Housing Symposium provides an opportunity to dialogue with individuals possessing diverse backgrounds of housing expertise about pressing issues of discrimination in our community and what we – as service providers, lenders, housing providers, advocates, social activists, government employees and community members alike – can do to halt its damaging effects.

R. Tamar Hagler Joins us as this year’s keynote speaker. Ms. Hagler is the Deputy Chief in the Housing and Civil Enforcement Section of the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, and specifically handles all fair housing cases in California, as well as in other western states.

A few of the workshops offered:

  • Effective Advocacy with Diverse and Divergent Populations
  • Beyond the Parking Space: Complex and Challenging Reasonable Accommodations
  • Aging In Place: Discrimination and Housing Choice in the Senior Community
  • Difficult Communications Between Landlords and Tenants
  • The Impact of Bank Owned Properties in Communities of Color

The registration fee is $30, which includes lunch, and fee waiver requests are available. MCLE certificates available.
