14th Annual Northeast Region
Fair Housing & Civil Rights Conference
POSTPONED

Please be advised that the Fair Housing & Civil Rights Conference originally scheduled to take place on April 24th has been temporarily postponed due to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.  Although it’s too early to set a definite date as of yet, we plan to reschedule the conference as soon as it becomes safe for us to do so. Your safety and welfare will remain our primary concern.  

 

We will notify you by email once the new conference date has been set.  

 

We have always sought to make the conference relevant to the realities faced on a day-to-day basis by those of us who struggle to make the promise of justice a reality.  Over the next few months, however, the unprecedented events through which we are now living will doubtlessly cast a disproportionate shadow over questions having to do with civil rights and access to fair housing. This, along with everything else, will be on our minds when the rescheduled FHCR Conference takes place later this year.

 

In the meantime, please take an occasional look at our website (www.fhcrconference.com). In addition to conference information, we plan to occasionally be posting information there about the state of fair housing and civil rights in these uncertain times.

 

Best wishes and good health to you from the Fair Housing & Civil Rights Conference Committee.
