FJI Files Two Lawsuits for Race Discrimination in Apartment Rentals

FJI, on behalf of Housing Opportunities Project for Excellence, has filed two lawsuits alleging racial discrimination in the renting of apartments.  The Complaints are available here and here. HOPE sent fair housing testers to two apartment complexes–one in Miami and one in Opa-Locka.  The tests revealed that, on the same days, the Black testers were told that nothing was currently available, while the non-Black testers were told that they could move in right away.  Unfortunately, housing discrimination still exists in Miami-Dade County, and these lawsuits represent one step in HOPE and FJI’s efforts to eradicate it.
