Greg Bass Addresses Conference of Georgia Legal Aid Advocates on Housing Discrimination

At the invitation of the Atlanta Legal Aid Society, NCLEJ Senior Attorney Greg Bass traveled to Atlanta on October 2nd, where he addressed advocates gathered at an annual conference at the Georgia State Bar offices on using the theory of disparate impact discrimination in challenging government policies that violate the federal Fair Housing Act (FHA). The presentation was prompted by the June 2015 decision of the U.S. Supreme Court that validated the use of disparate impact analysis in assessing FHA violations of discrimination based on race and other factors.
