Webinar on Fair Housing with U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders
Tuesday, September 27, 2011 at 3:00pm EDT
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) will hold a webinar on the Fair Housing Act, which ensures all persons have equal access to the housing of their choice.
The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing based on race, color, national origin, religion, familial status, sex, and disability. The Fair Housing Act ensures that all persons have the right to receive equal housing opportunities. It protects all residents against prohibited discrimination, regardless of their legal status in the United States.
The Asian American and Pacific Islander population grew faster than any other group in this country over the last ten years. This growth creates an urgent need to understand everyday problems, e.g., housing discrimination, that challenge AAPIs across the country. HUD estimates that one in five AAPIs face housing discrimination, yet only 1% of HUD’s Fair Housing complaints are from AAPI community.
