November 17, 2021 | 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM EST
The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination on the basis of sex, including sexual orientation and gender identity. This session of the Fair Housing 2021: What Counselors Need to Know Conference, reviewed how the Fair Housing Act (FHA) applies to the Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, Queer+ (LGBTQI+) community, equal access to housing protections, HUD's Equal Access Rules, and how to identify if your client's rights may have been infringed and how your agency can be of support.
