In recognition of Fair Housing Month, the City of Iowa City’s Office of Equity and Human Rights, the Johnson County Affordable Housing Coalition, and Iowa Legal Aid will host a complimentary virtual screening of the documentary, “A Matter of Place,” on Wednesday, April 26, 2023. Watch the trailer here.
The screening (film length 27:35 minutes) will begin on Zoom at 6 p.m., followed by a panel discussion.
About the film
The film connects past struggles for fair housing to contemporary incidents of housing bias based on race, sexual orientation, disability, and source of income, and presents three stories of people who faced housing discrimination in present-day New York City. They poignantly describe the injuries inflicted on them during these incidents, as well as their resolve to fight for justice. Through experts, civil rights advocates, and fair housing testers, the film also recounts our nation’s often overlooked history of residential segregation and introduces viewers to systemic and pervasive injustices that, despite the existence of fair housing laws, continue to inflict harm on entire communities and individuals throughout America.
