April is designated fair housing month due to the passing of the Fair Housing Act, an act closely associated with Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that sought to end housing discrimination and advance inclusivity and social justice. It was signed into law on April 11th 1968 and hence prohibited housing discrimination based on race, religion, national origin, sex, handicap and family status. Vermont enacted such laws in 1987 further protecting age, sexual orientation and gender identity.
Please join us for an opening reception and cocktail party on Friday, April 1st, from 6-9. There is a $5 suggested donation after 7 pm. Open hours are Saturdays and Sundays from noon until five through Saturday, April 30th.
