Disparate Impact and Treatment In Fair Housing

Time: 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM

The U.S. Supreme Court through the Fair Housing Act of 1968 created protections against housing discrimination. “Disparate Impact” is unintentional, whereas, “Disparate Treatment” is an intentional decision to treat people differently based upon race or other protected characteristics.

A relevant example of disparate impact is the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) ceasing to investigate housing discrimination cases. As a result, vulnerable populations are losing ground in civil rights protections.
