This presentation will review common discrimination incidents and mistakes made by housing providers. Attendees will hear from a professional trainer about:
- Avoiding discrimination at every stage of tenancy.
- Categories of discriminatory conduct including retaliation.
- The protected classes.
- Reasonable accommodations and modifications.
- And more.
Although the Community Teamwork, Inc. (CTI) fair housing program promotes fair housing in Middlesex and Essex counties, the presentation will be applicable to landlords statewide, and Aaron is always available to talk fair housing with provider wherever they are from. Landlords in Middlesex and Essex counties will make a connection to CTI and local resources. The slides to be presented have been approved by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Attendees will leave knowing how experts recommend landlords provide equal housing opportunity.
Part of this event will be presented by Aaron Ginsberg, Fair Housing Coordinator at Community Teamwork, Inc. Aaron is developing Community Teamwork's fair housing program, which includes resources for landlords, tenants and advocates to work toward equal housing opportunity in practice. Prior to his role at CTI Aaron was a staff attorney at the Disability Rights Center helping to expand access to housing and public accommodations for those of us living with disabilities.
Networking time will be moderated by Dana Fogg. Dana started his rental business in 1994 with his first Multifamily in Watertown. Since then, Dana and his wife have purchased and sold rental properties around the Metro West area. They now have 9 Units in Watertown and Marlborough. Dana is the Vice President of the Metro West Property Owners Association.
