Fair Chance for Housing: “Debunking Debate” – Wednesday, July 28th, 5-6pm
Join us to learn more about the Fair Chance for Housing Act to end the use of conviction records in NYC tenant screening! Debaters will debunk common myths and answer your hard-to-ask questions, including:
What about the safety of other tenants?
What about people convicted of sex offenses?
What about survivors’ needs?
Will landlords still have the right to choose who lives in their buildings?
Why should we favor people with convictions?
And more! Then, find out how to join us in collective action.
Presented by the Fair Chance for Housing Campaign, the Women’s Community Justice Association, Brooklyn Defender Services, Exodus Transitional Community, the Fortune Society, Freedom Agenda – Urban Justice Center, John Jay College Institute for Justice & Opportunities, Mental Health Project – Urban Justice Center, and Restorative Action Alliance.
