This event will provide unique content specific to the mortgage/real estate industry and is not a duplicate of the April 19th Grand Rapids Fair Housing Event.

Hear from Liz Keegan, Director of Education & Outreach with Fair Housing Center of West Michigan.

Ms. Keegan provides technical fair housing training to the housing industry and information on fair housing rights to the community at large.

This event with be great for all involved in the Real Estate Industry including REALTORS.  

We will be discussing the fact that we all maybe violating Fair Housing Guidelines unintentionally due to a simple lack of knowledge and by making assumptions.  There will be a focus on social media advertising, real estate sales, mortgages, rentals and condo associations.


 

The Fair Housing Center of West Michigan (FHCWM) is celebrating 50 years of Fair Housing!  On April 11, 1968—seven days after the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.—President Lyndon Johnson signed into law Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, commonly known as the Fair Housing Act.  The legislation advanced an ambitious and progressive vision: to eliminate housing discrimination and residential segregation in this country.  As envisioned, the Fair Housing Act is an important tool for achieving both justice and equity.  In signing the bill, President Johnson proclaimed: “At long last, fair housing for all is now a part of the American way of life. We have come some of the way—not near all of it.” 

Fair housing is not just an important tool for eliminating discrimination; it also helps to strengthen families, communities, businesses, and our overall economy.  Fulfillment of the letter and spirit of the law means that every community can be a place of opportunity where people can live in diverse, inclusive, accessible neighborhoods with quality schools, healthy foods, meaningful jobs, health care, green spaces, quality credit, and the other opportunities that frame and affect our lives.  Join the  FHCWM all yearlong on Facebook to learn more: information on this important history, current housing discrimination trends and data, case examples, book and movie suggestions, partners in this work, and more.  https://www.facebook.com/fhcwm/
