About the Event

Event Monday, April 22, 2019 - 5:30pm - 7:30pm

HDTP is seeking individuals who are willing to serve as housing discrimination testers. A tester is someone who attempts to rent an apartment and then provides an objective and unbiased report on the treatment received during the housing search. HDTP uses the information gathered by testers to see if renters are treated differently on the basis of a protected category. The protected categories in Massachusetts are: race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, familial status, genetic information, marital status, sexual orientation, public assistance, military status, age, and gender identity. Experience with renting housing is helpful, but not required. Testers must be at least 18 years of age. Identity and criminal background checks including a CORI is required.

Cost: FREE
