Fair Housing Films and Panel Discussion

  • Joe's Movement Emporium (map)

Saturday, April 27 at 6 pm Films begin 7 pm

All are welcome to join us for this free and informative event. Joe’s will screen two short films on housing discrimination, racial segregation, and persistent institutional racism, “All the Way Home” and “A Matter of Place”. 

After the screening, we will host a panel discussion with experts on un-fair housing history and practices.

Free. Please RSVP.

A Matter of Place shines a bright light on housing discrimination, one of the most shrouded and misunderstood civil rights issues in America. The documentary connects past struggles for fair housing to contemporary incidents of housing bias based on race, sexual orientation, disability, and source of income. The film depicts three stories of people who faced housing discrimination in present-day New York City. They poignantly describe the injuries inflicted on them during these incidents, as well as their resolve to fight for justice. Through experts, civil rights advocates, and fair housing testers, the film also recounts our nation's often overlooked history of residential segregation and introduces viewers to systemic and pervasive injustices that, despite the existence of fair housing laws, continue to inflict harm on entire communities and individuals throughout America.
