Help Fight Housing Discrimination
Do you have a flexible schedule, a commitment to civil rights, and interested in playing a vital role in assuring equal housing opportunities are provided to all? If so, you may be interested in becoming a tester for The Fair Housing Project of The Legal Aid of North Carolina (LANC).
What is fair housing testing?
Testing is the process for and method of ascertaining and measuring the difference in quality, content, and quantity of information and service given to home seekers by housing providers.
How do you test housing discrimination?
Fair housing testers typically pretend to be looking for an apartment or buying a house. They may call and/or go in person to see about a vacancy. Then they fill out a detailed report on exactly how they were treated. For many years now, fair housing programs around the country have used testers to investigate cases of discrimination.
The Fair Housing Project needs your help!
A successful testing program requires diversity. We need people comprising the full spectrum of humanity including: race, color, national origin, ability, age and gender.
Why You Should Be a Tester?
You will get to help fight housing discrimination. You will be helping people to live wherever they so choose, free from discrimination and hatred. We are also able to pay a stipend and mileage roundtrip.
How to get Involved:
Testers only need to attend one training class and registration is required. If you are interested in becoming a tester or would like more information, please call Carol Comrie, Testing Coordinator, at 919.861.1885 or e-mail email@example.com.
