Many people often face discrimination when they are looking for a place to call home. Discrimination can come in many forms from many different people, but there are laws that are in place to protect you.
We want to discuss this important topic, and hear how you or someone you know have been affected negatively by housing discrimination.
Parking is FREE in the Central Library parking garage. Register here to RSVP!
