The Fair Housing Center of Central Indiana (FHCCI) presents its 2022 Legal Seminar (Virtual), “Fair Housing & Disability Rights – What You Need To Know.” The FHCCI is pleased to have fair housing attorney, Erin Kemple, as the presenter. The event is part of the FHCCI’s work to spread information and awareness about fair housing laws. People with disabilities were protected under fair housing laws in 1988, yet, in Indiana and nationally, claims of housing discrimination by persons with disabilities are the most commonly filed allegation of the seven protected groups under the federal Fair Housing Act and the Indiana Fair Housing Act.

In this webinar, hear about significant fair housing litigation challenging discriminatory practices against people with disabilities across housing-based transactions. The guest speaker, Erin Kemple, is an attorney who for over 30 years has been working to ensure fair housing rights which has included cases involving people with disabilities.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Attorneys; advocates; housing consumers, human rights and relations commissions; local governments, and more!

ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Erin Kemple is a consultant and fair housing expert working with fair housing agencies around the country. She started her legal career in 1985 as a staff attorney at Western Mass. Legal Services. While there she and her colleagues founded the Housing Discrimination Project (HDP), now the Massachusetts Fair Housing Center. She joined HDP as the first legal director and then the executive director in 1994. She moved from there to the Connecticut Fair Housing Center (CFHC) in 2003 where she stayed as executive director until 2022. While at CFHC, she worked with staff on several important fair housing cases including Gilead et al. v.

A jury came back with a verdict against the town of $5.1 million. She has given numerous trainings on the fair housing laws to lawyers, consumers, and housing providers as well as working with state and local officials to ensure that all communities welcome all people.
