The New Jersey Division on Civil Rights (DCR) offers trainings aimed at preventing and addressing harassment and discrimination through their Education and Training Unit.

NJ Division on Civil Rights Fair Chance in Housing Act Webinar
Today, nearly one-third of the adult working age population in the U.S. has a conviction record. Many of these people have been denied housing, though most pose no threat to their communities. New Jersey’s Fair Chance in Housing Act (FCHA) remedies this form of discrimination by establishing a fair process for consideration of conviction histories during the application process. Join us for this interactive webinar that will provide an overview of FCHA, including effective implementation strategies and model forms that can be utilized by housing providers. Participants will also explore how conviction record screenings have disproportionately impacted communities of color, and consider ways to create discrimination-free housing environments.
