When COVID-19 hit, Angela was concerned that her landlord could expose her to the virus. She came to us for advice about new laws that would protect her from her landlord. He was her landlord for 17 years and they had a professional relationship.
But that changed when he made sexual advances toward her. Not only did he sexually assault her, he became hostile, refusing to interact with her appropriately. Sexual harassment is prohibited under fair housing laws.
Angela wants to tell her story because she does not want anybody else to suffer for as long as she did. There are many people who don’t know that they are protected by the Fair Housing Act.
Your donation can help them by funding us to counsel them on their rights, investigate cases of harassment, and file lawsuits against abusers.
