Fair Housing Update

May 26, 2011

Last weekend, KOIN aired a report about the Fair Housing audit the Portland Housing Bureau commissioned to identify discrimination in our rental housing market, and the follow-up steps we're taking in response. "Ultimately, it's about the person who experiences discrimination," Nick said. "The message that we're sending loud and clear to landlords is that we will not tolerate discrimination."

In today's Mercury, Denis Theriault talks to several of the landlords called out by the audit. 

"The blowback, which officials anticipated, points to the challenges investigators face when building rock-solid discrimination cases out of subjective audit results," he writes. "The response also testifies to the often-subtle nature of the complaints underlying the audit."
