The FHC Staff and Board of Directors thank everyone who attended and sponsored our 22nd Anniversary Event - a Fair Housing Breakfast with Guest Speaker John Relman. We feel it was a great success and are grateful for the support of the community.
The morning began with a delicious breakfast buffet at the Dahlmann Campus Inn in downtown Ann Arbor. Attendees got a chance to network and learn more about the Fair Housing Center. John Relman then spoke to us about "Lasting Effects: The Next Generation of Fair Housing Enforcement.” His talk covered topics such as redlining, reverse redlining, and the impact that leaders in the real estate and lending industries can make in working to end housing discrimination.
We hope the event expanded the conversation about fair housing.
Thank you to our Sponsors
