Fair Housing & Source of Income Discrimination for Housing Providers

by: LIFE CIL and Prairie State Legal Services

  • Price: FREE

This is a free presentation for housing providers about Fair Housing laws and the new protection against source of income discrimination. Emily Petri, supervising attorney in Prairie State Legal Services' Bloomington office, will be our presenter.

Fair housing is the right of a person to choose housing free from discrimination. This refers to any practice that limits housing choice because of someone's particular trait. Those traits include race, color, religion, sex, national origin, familial status (families with children), disability, age, ancestry, military or military discharge status, marital status, protective order status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and, most recently, source of income. A new Illinois law went into effect January 1, 2023, making it unlawful under the Illinois Human Rights Act for landlords to make decisions adverse to tenants and applicants on the basis of their source of income.

There will be a Q&A session following the presentation.

Please RSVP to Vicky at LIFE CIL vicky@lifecil.org by April 17 letting us know if you will be attending in person (limited seating) or via Zoom:

Please let us know if you need any accommodations at least 2 weeks in advance of the meeting.
