How Fair Is Fair Housing?

Commemorating the 50-year anniversary of the Fair Housing Act

Join us on Friday, April 13, 2018 for this joint commemorative Live Forum sponsored by the Columbus REALTORS® Affordable Housing Committee and the Columbus Realtist Association.

This forum, which starts at 11a, and held at Columbus REALTORS® Membership Headquarters, 2700 Airport Dr., 43219, will feature a panel discussion on a variety of topics, including:

  • How long has Fair Housing legislation been around?
  • Why was/is there a need for Fair Housing?
  • What are our legislators currently doing to improve fair housing?
  • Why do lenders ask for personal information regarding race, sex, and ethnicity, etc.?
  • How do local Fair Housing agencies make a difference?
  • How does where we live intersect with other aspects of our lives and make a difference in our health and life expectancy?
  • What can individuals and groups such as, Columbus REALTORS® Affordable Housing Committee and Columbus Realtist Association can do to help make positive changes in fair housing.
