PHOENIX (Tuesday, February 22, 2011) - Attorney General Tom Horne is inviting the public to participate in a fair housing webinar on Friday, February 25th from 9:30 am to noon.
The webinar will feature a panel of experts from the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, Community Legal Services, the Southwest Fair Housing Council, and Don’t Borrow Trouble Arizona. Discussion topics will include discrimination, reasonable accommodations, complaints, equal opportunities, protected classes, assistive animals, children and fair lending.
“As Arizona’s Attorney General, it is my responsibility to enforce Arizona’s Fair Housing Act as well as to educate our community about the importance of fair housing and the requirements of our civil rights laws,” said Horne. “Some housing violations take place because people are unaware of fair housing laws. Others are deliberate acts of discrimination. I encourage all Arizonans to learn more about their fair housing rights and responsibilities.”
