HRC TO HOST FREE WORKSHOP IN MONTEREY PARK ON RENT INCREASES, EVICTIONS, DISCRIMINATION, FORECLOSURE AND MORE! – 12/13/16

The Housing Rights Center (HRC), and the City of Monterey Park, will be hosting a FREE ‘Fair Housing Workshop’ for Monterey Park landlords, tenants and community members on Friday, December 13th, 2016 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm at the Bruggemeyer Library Friends Room located at 318 S. Ramona Ave., Monterey Park, CA 91754.  HRC will present information and resources regarding housing discrimination and landlord-tenant rights and responsibilities.

Topics will include: discrimination against families with children, disability rights, sexual harassment, evictions, repairs, security deposits, rent increases, substandard conditions, and much more!

Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, known as the “Fair Housing Act,” provides protection from discrimination in all housing related transactions based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, familial status and disability. Furthermore, the California Fair Employment and Housing Act provides additional protections against housing discrimination based on marital status, ancestry, sexual orientation, and source of income. The California Unruh Civil Rights Act also provides protection from housing discrimination based on age and protects the right to freedom from violence and intimidation in housing.

For more information, or to RSVP for this FREE workshop, please call Oscar at (800) 477-5977 extension 1103. TTY users please call (213) 201-0867. This location is handicap accessible.

HRC is California’s largest nonprofit, civil-rights agency dedicated to promoting and securing fair housing. HRC investigates over 1,600 housing discrimination complaints annually and assists over 17,000 individuals with their housing-related concerns. Individuals who believe they are victims of housing discrimination or who have questions about the fair housing laws or their landlord-tenant rights are encouraged to contact HRC for additional information at 1-800-477-5977 (voice) or 213-201-0867 (TTY). Additional information is also available at www.housingrightscenter.org.
