April is Fair Housing Month
Most agree discrimination in housing is much subtler today than in decades past, but it does persist. Every April, the nation celebrates the strides we've made, and the work that remains to be done. In honor of Fair Housing Month, in partnership with the Office of Community Development, we are highlighting a selection of books for adults, teens and children that highlight issues of fair housing and discrimination. For a more comprehensive list of titles, visit the Fair Housing Council of Oregon's website.
In honor of Fair Housing Month, Washington County will be hosting a free public screening of the acclaimed documentary, Brick by Brick... A Civil Rights Story.
Monday, April 22nd, 6:00 - 7:00 p.m.
Washington County Public Services Building Auditorium
155 N. 1st Ave., Hillsboro (map)
