Learn how to advocate for clients, consumers and neighbors to help them address housing discrimination, using the federal Fair Housing Act and New Jersey Fair Housing laws. Hear from policy experts who are advancing changes to current laws to protect and expand the rights of tenants, to address tenant discrimination and the right of tenants to live in a safe, decent home. Landlords are using credit reporting agencies that put renters on a “blacklist” for going to court to have a home that is safe and habitable. The session will include advocacy information about new state and federal legislative efforts to ensure the rights of homeowners and tenants.
