Hi I’m John Trasviña, Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity. I would like to invite you to talk directly with me about Fair Housing Month during a live Twitter chat on April 8 from 2:00 to 2:30 p.m. Eastern time.
This month marks the 43rd anniversary of President Johnson signing the Fair Housing Act into law. Our 2011 Fair Housing Month theme, “Live Free,” sends a powerful message that discrimination has no home in America and that no person should be denied housing or treated differently because of their race, color, national origin, religion, gender, family status, or disability.
You can participate in the chat by following HUD on Twitter @HUDNews and using the hashtag #FairHousing. During the chat, you are encouraged to submit your Fair Housing questions and I will answer as many Fair Housing questions as possible.
For more information about the Fair Housing Act, including summaries of recent housing discrimination cases, go to hud.gov/fairhousing.
