Domestic Violence & the Virginia Fair Housing Law
An estimated 1.3 million women are victims of physical assault by a partner each year. While approximately fifteen percent of domestic violence victims are men, domestic violence is a crime that disproportionally affects women and mothers with children.
Survivors of domestic violence may face eviction due to the actions of their abuser. Landlords may evict them for violence in the household, destruction of property, or calls to 911 as a result of a domestic disturbance or because some local nuisance ordinances require landlords to address circumstances resulting in excessive police calls.
Join us as we discuss the topics dealing with domestic violence such as:
*How Can We Improve the Protection as well as Make Housing Available to Survivors of Domestic Violence?
* What Is the VAWA Law?
* The Housing Provider's Role in Ensuring the Rights of Survivors of Domestic Violence are Protected Under the Virginia Fair Housing Law
Share information with others about this event and encourage them to register and join us. We look forward to seeing you on October 11th
