Fit for a King is the Louisiana Fair Housing Action Center’s annual tribute to the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Each year, LaFHAC staff organizes a series of events to engage the community around fair housing, celebrate the Civil Rights Movement, and inspire change.
Registration is now open for LaFHAC's 2021 Fit for a King Fair Housing Summit, Discrimination is Deadly. Join us virtually this year as we hear from housing justice advocates and community leaders about the connections between housing discrimination, segregation, environmental racism, COVID-19, gentrification, policing, and the eviction crisis, as well as how communities are fighting back. The summit will be held over three Thursdays in January, with each day featuring a panel, a performance by a local artist, a keynote address and concrete ways you take action to advance housing justice in 2021. Fit for a King will take place January 14th, 21st, and 28th from 11am to 1pm on Zoom. The summit is free, but you must register to attend. Captioning and ASL interpretation will be provided throughout the summit. If you would like to attend and need an accommodation or interpretation into an additional language, please include that information when you register. We will do our best to honor all requests for accommodations and interpretation, but can only guarantee requests made by January 7th. If you have questions about accommodations, interpretation or how to use Zoom, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
