Housing Law and the Impact on Domestic Violence Survivors

August 29, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Many municipalities in the U.S. have enacted nuisance property ordinances, which can have harmful effects on victims of domestic violence. Although state fair housing laws, landlord-tenant statutes, and other legal provisions may protect the housing rights of some survivors of domestic violence, these laws leave gaps that can threaten the housing security of many others.

By attending this webinar, you will:

  • Learn about the impact of housing law on domestic violence survivors, including local nuisance ordinances, and state fair housing and landlord-tenant laws
  • Hear from speakers with experience advocating for the housing rights of domestic violence survivors
  • Obtain tools and strategies that can be used to provide legal protections for victims
