Bootheel Public Invited to Free MCHR "Dine & Discuss" Fair Housing Events
This summer, the Missouri Commission on Human Rights (MCHR) rolls out a major component of its year-long public awareness campaign, the Show-Me Fair Housing Awareness Project, with 12 public lunch and dinner events spanning six southeastern Missouri counties. The free events, Dine & Discuss: Fair Housing, provide members of Missouri’s Bootheel communities with an opportunity to learn about fair housing rights, including information about discrimination in rentals, predatory lending, foreclosure avoidance, and more.
One attendee at each Dine & Discuss: Fair Housing event will win a $50 gift card to an area merchant. Persons at the event also can register for free one-on-one housing and financial counseling and sign up for a scholarship to a homebuyer education class ($100 value). Dine & Discuss: Fair Housing is made possible through a grant awarded to the MCHR by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Space is limited. Reservations should be made three days prior to an event by calling 573-522-1031 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. All event locations are ADA accessible. Additional reasonable accommodations will be provided with advance notice.
