Louisville residents weigh in on housing discrimination, desires

December 18, 2015
A new report sheds light on how housing discrimination endures in Louisville, and how residents would like the issue to be addressed.
     The federally funded report was released Friday by the Louisville Metro Human Relations Commission. It looks at focus groups with more than 60 Louisville residents from protected classes as outlined by the federal 1968 Fair Housing Act and local anti-discrimination laws.
     Participants were asked to discuss what they like and dislike about their neighborhood, what they would change, and where they would live if affordable housing was available across the city.
