In the 54 years since the Fair Housing Act passed on April 11, 1968, fair housing has become more of an oxymoron than a reality for those most vulnerable to the many forms of systemic and institutional discrimination that predicate American culture, particularly the recovery community. Join us as we seek to get a better understanding of how we can advocate for the needs of not only the recovery community, but all communities in need of representation for fair, just, and equitable housing. Together, we can challenge housing inequities and learn how to address them.
