Fair Housing Month Proclamation

  • Portland City Hall, Council Chambers 1221 SW 4th Ave Portland, OR 97204 (map)

On April 11, 1968, the Fair Housing Act was signed into law to prohibit housing discrimination, undo racial segregation patterns, and provide equal access to housing opportunity for all. Please join us on Wednesday, April 17, 2019 to commemorate this important anniversary as the City of Portland proclaims April as Fair Housing Month.

Join Mayor Wheeler and Portland City Council as we hear from participants in the N/NE Neighborhood Housing Strategy, the SW Corridor Equitable Housing Strategy, and the East Portland Action Plan about the work being done to advance equal housing opportunity in our community, honor the winners of the Fair Housing Council of Oregon’s annual poster contest for their illustrations of the theme “Everyone is Welcome in My Neighborhood,” and more!
