State Representative Stephanie Cummings (R-74) and community leaders Jacqueline Jamilah Jackson and Liz Bullard hosted a successful and informative workshop with Fionnula Darby-Hudgens, of the Connecticut Fair Housing Center, to help people identify housing discrimination, and to provide tools, tips and techniques to overcome barriers to stable housing.
About a dozen people gathered for the Moving Forward Workshop that took place on Tuesday, August 7, at Waterbury City Hall and featured an in-depth powerpoint presentation by Darby-Hudgens. The presentation covered everything from the basic definitions of housing discrimination to the services and resources available for Connecticut residents who have been victims of discrimination.
