Missouri Human Rights Commission Offers Free Fair Housing Lunch and Learn Events
The Missouri Commission on Human Rights (MCHR) presents housing industry professionals in the state’s Bootheel region two free opportunities for education about fair housing practices under state and federal laws. Lunch & Learn: Fair Housing Education is designed specifically for those working in the industry, including bankers, brokers, builders, government officials, housing organizations, landlords, lenders, property owners and managers, and realtors.
The events, part of the MCHR’s Show-Me Fair Housing Awareness Project, offer attendees a complimentary meal, networking, and an in-depth program focusing on hot housing industry topics, including anti-discrimination laws, predatory lending, redlining, construction and design requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act, and new housing industry trends such as visit ability. Participants may choose to attend either location/date:

These industry events are part of a year-long Missouri public awareness campaign, the Show-Me Fair Housing Awareness Project, to educate the 150,000 citizens in Dunklin, Mississippi, New Madrid, Pemiscot, Scott, and Stoddard counties about their rights and obligations under fair housing laws. The project is made possible through an Education and Outreach Initiative grant awarded to the MCHR by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
