All the webinars are available as online videos that can be accessed at any time
on the website of Illinois Legal Aid Online. The webinars will educate the
public on their fair housing rights and provide information for housing
providers on their responsibilities under fair housing law. The topics include
the housing rights laws for people with disabilities, for LGBT individuals, for
new Americans and immigrants, for condo and co-op associations, and a general
fair housing overview. Three of the webinars are in both English and Spanish
versions, and closed captioning is available.
"The Department of Human Rights is excited to announce the availability of
this series of webinars on fair housing issues," said IDHR Director Rocco Claps.
"Housing law is a complex area of the law, and our partnership with the Lawyers'
Committee for Better Housing and the support of HUD's Office of Fair Housing and
Equal Opportunity has made it possible for us to empower the general public with
an easily accessible way to become knowledgeable about the fair housing
protections that are offered by the Illinois Human Rights Act."
