Event description

Description

On April 30, housing and disability District Government agencies have partnered to sponsor the 18th Annual DC Fair Housing Symposium, a city-wide event that seeks to raise awareness about fair housing rights and responsibilities.

The symposium sponsors have developed an impressive list of speakers who will relate first-hand accounts of impediments to fair housing, provide research data on the District’s efforts to ameliorate fair housing impediments and provide a guide on how to best use media outlets to tell the fair housing story.
