Dr. Lalit Acharya

At the close of 2022, we lost a phenomenal leader in the passing of Dr. Lalit Acharya. He truly was a visionary and kind man that had his fingerprint on so many elements that improved and will continue to improve our region. He was an innovator in his work in International Relations programs for two mayoral administrations, in the community to ensuring the Gandhi Memorial happened, and an essential force behind understanding the importance of highlighting the social history in the region by the establishment of and bringing to fruition the Civil Rights Institute of Inland Southern California.

His work and legacy are forever embedded in our hearts and in the community. The Civil Rights Institute is honored to host a Celebration of Life to honor him at our Bank of America Diversity Center. Please join us in toasting Lalit on Wednesday, January 18th at 5:30pm.

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.

Tanya Kelly

Riverside, CA

Fair Housing was instrumental in helping me resolve a dispute with my property manager over repairs needed in my apartment. The professional and courteous intervention by my counselor, Craig, resolved the issue without any adverse effect on my relationship with the management.
