Fair Housing Month Luncheon
The City of Greensboro’s Human Rights Department invites you to a free luncheon at Revolution Mill Event Center on April 27 from 12-2 pm to celebrate April as National Fair Housing Month. This event is designed to address community concerns about the lack of affordable housing, how it sometimes leads to discriminatory treatment, and how we can all play a part in resolving common issues.
Youth with The Poetry Project will be performing original pieces related to the topic. A brief panel discussion featuring City staff members Allen Hunt (Human Rights Fair Housing), Sue Schwartz(Planning Department Director), and Michelle Kennedy (Neighborhood Development Director) will review zoning laws, public perceptions about property values, fair housing laws and limitations, and the City’s efforts to address affordable housing shortages.
After the panel discussion, attendees will participate in guided conversations at their tables. Table topics, listed below, range from housing people with disabilities, income discrimination, second chance housing and more. Take this opportunity to network, learn and inform others!
