PBC Legal Aid Holds “Fair Housing Act Symposium”

We attended the Palm Beach County Legal Aid Society’s “Fair Housing Act Symposium” yesterday in West Palm Beach.

It was nice to see, for once, so many faces of people who were trying to bring clarity and truth to Fair Housing, as opposed to divide and conquer.

Admittedly, the Councilperson from Riviera Beach who spoke first (and whom I understand to be the incoming Chair of PBC League of Cities) needs to stop the NIMBY language and start accepting, embracing, and supporting the Recovery Community.

CBS12 also then released the following report later that evening about attempts by the State of Florida to regulate sober homes.  That report can be found here:
