LGBT communities continue to face high rates of discrimination when seeking increasingly limited affordable housing. This discrimination is compounded by the ongoing Federal and legal regulations that continue to shift in the beginning of 2020. This presentation will focus on fair housing law and housing discrimination from the policy perspective, including recent legislative/regulatory changes; key legal considerations around developing housing using the Low Income Housing Tax Credits for LGBTQ people; and the barriers, needs, and best practices to provide affirming and safe housing for LGBTQ elders and youth for advocates and developers. Join a group of legal, policy, and advocacy players to discuss ways to protect and advocate for deeply vulnerable LGBTQ communities under the current legislative and housing landscape.
Speakers: Sydney Kopp-Richardson (SAGE); Sasha Samberg-Champion (Relman Colfax PLLC); Randall Shorr (Randall B. Shorr Attorney at Law); Jorge Soto (National Fair Housing Alliance)
