City Events @ BCL Main

  1. Know Your Rights: Fair Housing 101

    October 24, 2018, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Meeting Rooms A and B

    Did you know that more than 50 percent of illegal acts of housing discrimination go unreported? This could be because community members are unaware of their rights, or out of fear of how reporting discrimination might impact their housing stability.

    The city's Diversity Advisory Board and Human Rights Commission have teamed up with city staff to host a Fair Housing "Know Your Rights" training. Community members and housing advocates are invited to attend and learn how to spot housing discrimination, and what to do if housing rights are violated.

    The training will be presented by the Fair Housing Council of Oregon, with dinner catered by Zoup!
