The city of Phoenix will mark National Fair Housing Month in April with a special training session jointly hosted with the Arizona Fair Housing Partnership.

“The Faces of Housing Discrimination” will be at 9 a.m. Wednesday, April 11, at the Disability Empowerment Center, 5025 E. Washington St.

Housing providers, including landlords, leasing agents, real estate agents and property managers, are encouraged to attend.

The cost is $20 until the day of the event, and $25 at the door. To register or for more information, call (602) 252-3423 or visit phoenix.gov/eod/whatsnew.

Fair Housing Month is designated to remind people that federal law prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental and financing of dwellings and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, familial status and disability.
