NLIHC and other members of the Fight For Housing Justice campaign will host a webinar on February 13 at 2:00 pm ET about HUD’s proposed Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule (see Memo, 1/13). This proposal is the Trump administration’s latest attack on civil rights and fair housing. Speakers will review HUD’s previous 2015 AFFH rule, summarize the administration’s proposed rule, and discuss how to take action and oppose this harmful proposal.
HUD’s proposed AFFH rule would gut the landmark 2015 AFFH rule that provided guidance and tools to state and local governments and public housing agencies to help them better identify and address harmful patterns – often created by government policy – of segregation, discrimination, and disinvestment. The 2015 rule was developed over several years with input from a wide variety of stakeholders.
NLIHC, the National Housing Law Project (NHLP), and the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) will host the webinar to help advocates learn more about HUD’s new proposal and how it could impact communities. Speakers include Debby Goldberg of NFHA, Renee Williams of NHLP, and Sonya Acosta of NLIHC.
Advocates can also find additional resources – including a two-page, an eight-page, and a 30-page summary and analysis – about AFFH and the proposed rule on the NLIHC website and www.FightForHousingJustice.org. Share materials on social media using the hashtag #KeepHousingFair
