Fair Housing 101: Anti-Discrimination & Fair Housing in Homeless & Housing Programs

Presented by: Nekesha Phoenix, Fair Housing Program Director, Austin Tenants Council

The Fair Housing 101 workshop will help you become a better advocate and understand the protections offered through Anti-discrimination and Fair Housing laws. The Federal Fair Housing Act refers to Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968(www.justice.gov). This Act, in addition to the Texas Fair Housing Act(www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us), protects your right to rent an apartment, buy a home, obtain a mortgage, or purchase homeowners insurance free from discrimination based on:

  • Race
  • Color
  • National Origin
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Familial Status, and
  • Disability

Learning Objectives:


  • Learn about key Fair Housing concepts
  • Increase understand of what is covered under the federal Fair Housing Act and who is protected
  • Be able to identify the intersection of federal and local laws.
  • Recognize discrimination across various scenarios and settings
  • Effectively address discrimination through advocacy, problem solving, and formal and informal avenues of reporting discrimination

Social Work CEUs available.
