Workshop: Know Your Housing Rights

On April 1, Women of the World in collaboration with the Salt Lake Community Action Program, put on a community workshop that detailed renters housing rights.  Jennie Perez dedicated her time and presented material from the Utah Renters Handbook to a group of over forty participants.  Questions ranged from the proper way to dispute claims to landlord bias and discrimination.Each member of the WoW community was invited to a post-workshop banquet prepared by Women of the World founder Samira Harnish and to help themselves to donations of clothing and toys.  Women of the World distributed gifts of towels, sundries, and shopping bags donated by WoW and the LDS Humanitarian Center.WoW would like to thank Jennie Perez, the Salt Lake Community Action Program, and the LDS Humanitarian Center for their generous support of this program and to the Horizonte School for its continued housing of these special educational events.
