April is Fair Housing Month

April is Fair Housing Month, and we are happy to have LaSheila Yates, Executive Director, of the City of Cedar Rapids Civil Rights Commission as our speaker for our meeting Thursday evening, April 9th, at the Clarion Hotel. LaSheila was named the Executive Director of the Cedar Rapids Civil Rights Commission back in August 2014 and brings unique housing knowledge to this position from her previous experience as a Civil Rights Investigator and the former Assisted Housing Programs Manager that oversaw the Section 8 Voucher Program for the City of Cedar Rapids.
