Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Mar 6th: Discrimination and Fair Housing: How to Offer Equal Housing Opportunity

event marketing picture showing zoom details, date, and speaker or topic for discrimination virtual meeting 2024-03-06 1st wednesday

This presentation will give a comprehensive overview of federal and state protected classes. We're fortunate to live in a country and a state where we cannot be denied housing because of our belonging to a protected class. But as rental housing operators, we do have to deny applications. We will review:

  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and 1968 as Amended.
  • Protected classes under Massachusetts General Law Chapter 151B.
  • The full list of federal and state protected classes.
  • Prohibited steering.
  • Enforcement actions.
  • What not to put in an ad.
  • And more!

Attendees will leave confident in our ability to offer equal housing opportunity while still screening for success in rental housing.

Attorney Jordana Greenman
A diverse group of happy people are smiling with their arms raised so as to look cheery. An old woman in a wheelchair is wearing a dress. A white woman is standing next to a black man. A young boy is next to the man, perhaps the child of the standing woman and the man. All are very happy.
Equal housing opportunity is fun, rewarding and easy once you know how.

Part of this presentation will be given by Attorney Jordana Roubicek Greenman. She is a real estate lawyer, recipient of the Super Lawyers Rising Star award 2012-2020, and one of Boston Magazine's Top Lawyers of 2022 and 2023. Her practice - with offices in Boston and Watertown - includes commercial and residential landlord/tenant disputes, condominium association representation, general real estate litigation, and commercial and residential real estate closings. Attorney Greenman has a well-respected reputation for aggressively advocating for her clients' goals, and ensuring beneficial outcomes at a reasonable cost. She was an instrumental part of the team spearheading legal action opposing the Massachusetts and Boston eviction moratoriums, and is very active within the legal community. Attorney Greenman is a member of the Real Estate Council for the Massachusetts Bar Association and the Real Estate Bar Association, writes columns for the Massachusetts Lawyers Journal and Real Estate Bar Association News, and regularly leads legal seminars for first-time homebuyers and small-property owners.

"Attorney Greenman is such a great source of common sense and specialized wisdom!" -David
