AZCEH Training Offering in Partnership with ASU Center for Applied Behavioral Health Policy: 

Breaking Barriers - Ensuring Fair Housing and Employment Opportunities for Persons with Criminal Convictions or Disabilites

About the Training:

Too often, individuals who have been convicted of crimes and served their sentence return to our communities only to be faced with barriers in finding housing and employment that make them more likely to recidivate and continue the cycle of crime.

Come join us on March 10 as we gather for a panel discussion on how to overcome these obstacles and help ensure fair access to housing and employment.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

After attending this session, participants will be able to:
• Explain the obstacles that currently exist in providing fair housing and employment to individuals with criminal
convictions.
• Identify reasonable accommodations in housing and employment for people with disabilities.
• List the terms and conditions of tenancy, including eviction, that intersect with criminal background checks and crime-
free lease addendums.
• Identify possible advocacy strategies to assist tenants with a history of criminal conviction who otherwise meet the
tenancy requirements to advocate to obtain and maintain housing.
• Identify pitfalls for housing provider to avoid that may lead to discrimination of protected groups.
