Free Symposium Available to Housing Seekers and Professionals
In observance of Fair Housing month, the Jacksonville Human Rights Commission will host its annual Fair Housing Symposium in partnership with the Jacksonville Housing Authority (JHA) and Jacksonville Area Legal Aid, Inc. (JALA). This year’s theme is “Equal Opportunity for All - Fair Housing: Safe, Accessible & Free of Harassment.” The event is funded by the City of Jacksonville Neighborhoods, Housing and Community Development Division’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds.
Citizens will learn about their housing rights and responsibilities through presentations and workshops led by experts and advocates. Subjects include sexual harassment, LGBTQ discrimination, disability rights and service animals versus emotional support animals.
In addition to increasing awareness of fair housing practices, the event will celebrate the 1968 passage of the Fair Housing Act. This event is open to the public. Pre-registration is required to attend.
