Class covers:

How federal and state law protects against gender-based discrimination in housing
Legal protections against sexual harassment by landlords or managers
Rights of tenants who are victims of domestic violence, and landlords’ duties toward these tenants
Where to report discrimination or harassment, and what to do about it
