City Attorney Slates Fair Housing Event

Seminar will cover what’s available after pandemic-era services end

The Prosecution and Public Rights Unit of the Alameda City Attorney’s Office will be holding its third annual Fair Housing conference, which will be free and open to all members of the public.

The seminar will take place Thursday, April 20, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 2263 Santa Clara Ave.

This year will be the first time the event is held in person. It will be full of helpful information on federal, regional, and local housing laws.

Seminar Topics:
• Tenant relocation and other hot topics
• The latest on rent laws and the end of the eviction moratorium
• Introduction to the Fair Housing laws
• Disability rights
• City Attorney’s new Mediation program and other services

Guest Speakers
• Leah Simon-Weisberg from the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment
• Nathanael Hill, Housing and Urban Development Branch Chief
• Gary Rhoades, Santa Monica Deputy City Attorney
• Professional staff and attorneys from the Alameda City Attorney’s Office

Admission is free, but registration is required. Refreshments will be provided.

The Fair Housing Seminar comes weeks after the city held a Rent Regulations Informational Workshop on April 6. At the workshop, attendees learned about rent increase regulations, termination of tenancy procedures, temporary relocation payments and more.

As the city moves away from the emergency ordinances that began during the pandemic that altered housing rules, more information about rent and fair housing will be useful for tenants and renters.
