FHCO's 20th Anniversary!

Fair Housing Month 2010

For Fair Housing Month 2010 the Fair Housing Council (FHCO) offered the public another Historic Bus Tour of Discrimination. In addition, we invited a national award winning author, Kevin Boyle, to Oregon as our keynote speaker to discuss a pivotal civil rights in housing case he wrote about in his book, "The Arc of Justice."
