HOPE

Housing Discrimination affects more than the direct victims; it impacts the whole community and society at large. Education is one of the most important keys to eliminating housing discrimination. HOPE, Inc. is increasing its outreach campaigns to educate more housing providers across the County. In 2013, HOPE, Inc. delivered fair housing training to nearly 200 housing providers in Broward County. “Housing providers” could refer to private realtors, homeowner associations, condo boards, co-op governing boards, mortgage lenders, banks, landlords, etc.

The amended federal Fair Housing Act prohibits nationally, any discrimination in the sale, rental, lending, insurance, or advertising of housing on the basis of: race, color, national origin, religion, disability, sex, and familial status. Rob Collins joins me to talk about what to do when encountering housing discrimination.
