Third Session Added for Workshop on Accessibility in Design and Construction

FREE TRAINING SESSION WITH NATIONALLY KNOWN EXPERTS ON SEPTEMBER 17

The Fair Housing Justice Center (FHJC) has added a third session to its series of training sessions,
Accessible Housing: A Civil Right. This free workshop is being offered to increase awareness of accessibility laws and regulations, and to help ensure that new buildings are designed and constructed correctly right from the start. Architects, builders, contractors, building engineers, real estate professionals, attorneys, government officials, disability rights advocates, and others will be provided with detailed and reliable information about federal fair housing accessibility requirements.

Instruction at the workshop will be provided by two nationally known experts on housing accessibility: Attorney Scott Moore, a partner with the law firm of Baird Holm LLP in Omaha; and Larry Fleming, an architect and consultant on accessibility issues with E&A Team, Inc. in Tuscaloosa.

The workshop will take place Friday, September 17th. There is no fee to attend, but advanced registration is required. Registration deadline is September 14th. Click HERE to learn more and to register.

The FHJC is listed by The NY State Board of Architecture as an approved provider of continuing education for architects licensed in New York.

The mission of the FHJC, a nonprofit civil rights organization, is to eliminate housing discrimination; promote policies and programs that foster open, accessible, and inclusive communities; and strengthen enforcement of fair housing laws in the New York City region.
