Housing Committee Charter
Housing is one of the areas where we see ongoing inequity, discrimination, restrictive practices, and the need for assistance within the community. Our committee takes it on.
In addition to actively receiving and seeking to address specific complaints of discrimination, we broadly advocate access to affordable housing and combat housing discrimination by fighting to eliminate restrictive housing practices in public and private housing and lending practices. We also study housing conditions in the local community, disseminating information and assistance which may eliminate discrimination in housing.
