Bismarck Fair Housing Act Film & Panel Discussion

Celebrating Equality—The Fair Housing Act at 50

Seven days after the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., President Lyndon Johnson signed into law Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, commonly known as the Fair Housing Act.

Join us on Monday, April 9 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum for a special screening of films highlighting the importance of fair housing. A panel discussion will follow after the screening to discuss the impact of fair housing in North Dakota.

Three short films will be screened: the award-winning Seven Days; Matter of Place; and Brick by Brick.

The panel discussion in Bismarck will be moderated by Aruna Seth of the North Dakota Human Rights Coalition. She will be joined by: Michelle Rydz, Executive Director of High Plains Fair Housing Center; Royce Schultze, Executive Director of the Dakota Center for Independent Living; Cheryl Kary, Executive Director of the Sacred Pipe Resource Center; David Klein, Executive Director of Stutsman County Housing Authority; and Lorraine Davis, Executive Director of the Native American Development Center.
