Student Forum on Source of Income Discrimination in Cuyahoga County: 08/09/16

Event:  Student Forum on Source of Income Discrimination in Cuyahoga County
Urban Building, Bonda Room (UR 254)
Tuesday, August 9, 2016 at 6:00 pm
 
"No Section 8" is a common phrase in apartment postings, telling prospective tenants that the landlord will not accept their housing choice vouchers.  Discriminating against an otherwise-qualified tenant solely because the tenant receives a housing voucher or other form of income is known as source of income discrimination.  
 
We will be discussing the causes and effects of Source of Income Discrimination.  Twelve student-researchers conducted four in-depth studies on Source of Income Discrimination, and will be sharing their results and discussing possible policy responses.  The research took place as part of UST 893/693, an Applied Research course, for Urban graduate students.  The course was co-taught by Professors Megan Hatch and Joseph Mead.
 
The event is free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be available.  No RSVP is required.
