BLACK HISTORY MONTH
In celebration of Black History Month, the Fair Housing Council would like to recognize the late Congressman John Lewis. He was one of the original 13 Freedom Riders whose mission it was to bring awareness and change to segregationist practices in the South. Mr. Lewis fought side-by-side with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for civil rights, which included fair housing for all. He was first elected to Congress in 1986 and served 17 terms in the U.S. House of Representatives. John Lewis was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2011 by President Barack Obama. Mr. Lewis died on July 17, 2020.

A few words from our clients
Juanita at the Fair Housing Council was a godsend for a situation I had with my mom and sister who were being kicked out of their rental by property agency due to unsafe electrical hazard on the property. She really laid down the law on the property manager who was trying to do as little for my mom as possible and get away with not paying for temporary housing as mom was without power for a week. At the end of it all Juanita got my mom and sister their full security deposit back.
Very informative with useful information. I found out about another program they have that I could use in the near future.
