April is Fair Housing Month

This morning, Nick, Mayor Hales and Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum welcomed Sara K. Pratt, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to City Hall.

Ms. Pratt met with jurisdictional partners and community leaders, and led a spirited discussion about Fair Housing challenges and opportunities in our community.

Nick was pleased to read a Proclamation during the City Council meeting, declaring April 2013 Fair Housing Month in the city of Portland.

We were also joined by 5th grader Ashley Robinson, who won this year's Fair Housing Council of Oregon Fair Housing poster contest - featuring the theme "Diversity Creates Better Neighborhoods." 

Special thanks to Ms. Pratt, Attorney General Rosenblum, and our other special guests for joining us!
