The Savannah Chatham County Fair Housing Council will hold its 19th Annual Fair Housing Luncheon & Awards Benefit on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 at the EOA Administration Building at 1120 May Street. Doors open at 11:30 PM. The speaker for this year’s event will be Elizabeth Singer of the U.S. Department of Justice. She is the Director of the U.S. Attorneys’ Office Fair Housing Program in the Civil Rights Division.
Traditionally, April has been recognized as Fair Housing Month to coincide with the signing of the federal Fair Housing Act. The local theme for this year’s event is “Fair Housing: It’s Not an Option. It’s the Law!”
The winner of the 2015 William K. Broker Good Citizen Award will also be announced during the luncheon. This annual award is presented to recognize a local citizen’s exemplary efforts to further the cause of fair housing. Additionally, the 2015 Fair Housing Poster Contest winners will be announced at the event. Twenty-six entries were received from area schools and the posters were all outstanding!
The luncheon is $30 per person. Contact the Fair Housing Council office for more information on corporate rates and Program Booklet advertising availability at (912) 651-3136.
