  1. To whom it may concern. My name is Tracy L. Brown. I am the Executive Director of the Fair Housing Center of Greater Boston. I am requesting a show discussing Fair Housing. Approximatley 50% of Blacks and Latinos are denied rental and sales based on their race. Approximately 30% of families with children are denied rental housing based on their familial status. I would like to discuss discrimination in housing for minorities and minority families with children. Moreover, the Boston area is losing thousands of affordable housing, which will displace low to moderate families of color, disabled communities, etc. from affordable housing. I think this is a much needed topic to discuss. April is Fair Housing Month. On April 30 2010, the Fair HOusing Center of Greater Boston is housing its 12th Annual Fair Housing Month Celebration. Our guest speaker is The Honorable Ron Sims, Deputy HUD Secretary. We will also be hosting our “Open Doors” Award Ceremony. The late Senator Edward Kennedy is on the awardees. There will be a special tribute to Senator Kennedy. Joseph P. Kennedy III will be accept the award on behalf of the Kennedy family. You can reach me at tbrown@bostonfairhousing.org or 617-399-0491 x 102. I think people need to know where to go if they are being discriminated against in housing. We provide complaint and systemic based testing to determine discrimination.
