Sexual harassment in housing affects countless individuals and can result in significant distress as well as eviction and homelessness. It often involves unrelenting, unwanted, sexual advances or requests for sexual acts in exchange for reduced rents or delayed evictions. Persons experiencing such conduct often are especially vulnerable, financially unstable with few housing options, including single mothers who fear homelessness. They may also be relying on housing vouchers. This session will explore the legal framework available under the federal Fair Housing Act to address sexual harassment in housing, and we will discuss opportunities for collaboration among those providing direct legal services and the federal government. We will discuss how to identify sexual harassment in housing and make appropriate referrals of such incidents and explore civil rights litigation on behalf of those who have been sexually harassed by property managers, landlords, maintenance workers, housing authority officials, or others with power over access to housing.
