November 4, 2022 | Categories: About the FHC, Fair Housing Breakfast

Ypsilanti, MI–

The Fair Housing Center of Southeast & Mid Michigan (FHC) will host its 9th Annual Fair Housing Breakfast on the morning of October 27th, at Weber’s Inn in Ann Arbor, and virtually. Bryan Greene, Vice President of Policy Advocacy at the National Association of REALTORS®, will be the guest speaker. Before joining NAR, Mr. Greene served for ten years in HUD’s Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity (FHEO).

Local, regional, and national organizations and businesses are sponsoring the 2022 event. Funds raised go directly toward ending housing discrimination and expanding equal housing opportunities. The Gold Sponsors are McKinley Companies LLC, Old National Bank, and the Washtenaw County Office of Community and Economic Development. Silver Sponsors are the Bank of Ann Arbor, Michigan Realtors®, University Bank, and Zillow.

Attendees typically include housing professionals, advocates, educators, government officials, students, and community members across the FHC’s 10-county service area. All are welcome. 

FHC Associate Director Kristen Cuhran Fuller states: “Achieving fair housing is a complex task; we can’t do it alone. We believe that all of us – from real estate agents, landlords, funders, and lenders, to community members and neighbors – can play a role. We are thankful for the support and collaboration from all of our generous sponsors. Our fundraising goal is $50,000 and we hope the public will help us surpass this amount and commit to furthering diversity, fair lending, and equal housing opportunity in their communities.”
