Mesa is hosting an event Tuesday for residents, landlords and housing professionals to better understand fair housing issues. The event will include a number of sessions dealing with topics that include the Arizona Residential Landlord Tennant Act, how to file a claim, disabilities in fair housing and the Violence Against Women Act. Experts will also take questions about fair housing, which protects the right for people to have housing opportunities without discrimination based on race, religion, sex, color, national origin, disability or family status.
The housing expo will include officials from Mesa, the Arizona Office of Attorney General, Community Legal Services and the Southwest Fair Housing Council. The event is scheduled from 8 a.m. to noon Tuesday at the Mesa Convention Center, 263 N. Center St. For information, call (480) 644-3536 or visit mesaaz.gov/housing.com.
