Lexington Fair Housing Council

While we provide direct legal support to folks who have experienced discrimination, we also do investigations into housing providers - everybody from local mom-and-pop landlords to big corporations that own lots of apartment complexes - to see if they are treating people differently because of one or more of the protected identities. This is where our volunteer discrimination testers - like you! - help us out. The primary task our volunteers do is contacting housing providers, whether it's landlords or realtors, and posing as a potential renter or home-buyer. It's basically like a secret shopper program, except we're doing it to gather legal evidence of possible discrimination. These contacts are done through both phone and in-person visits - it can vary based on what I am needing to investigate at a given time. However, because of COVID, all of our contacts are done via phone call at this time.
