Members of the Portland Housing Bureau took a bus tour on Fair Housing this week.
Fair Housing Council of Oregon took a curious group of Fair Housing tourists on a bumpy ride through history. They gave background on the lost city of Vanport, the Japanese families that spent a summer at an internment camp located at the Portland Expo Center and many other historic landmarks of discrimination in our own backyard.
