Join the City of Tucson Mayor Regina Romero, Housing and Community Development Director Liz Morales, and Jay Young, executive director of the Southwest Fair Housing Council. The panel will talk about the successes and challenges in achieving fair housing in Tucson.
This event is in celebration of Fair Housing Month in Tucson and throughout the country. On April 11, 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the landmark Civil Rights Act, which included Title VIII, known as the Fair Housing Act, that “prohibited discrimination concerning the sale, rental, and financing of housing based on race, religion, national origin, sex, (and as amended) handicap, and family status.”
