50 years since LIHS was founded.
Long Island Housing Services, Inc. (LIHS) invites you to join us on October 2, 2019 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of this principal Fair Housing agency. Help us recognize 50 years of our extraordinary contributions as a pillar of the Fair Housing movement.
On October 2, 2019, Long Island Housing Services will host a Gala event at Crest Hollow Country Club to highlight its 50th anniversary. The work of LIHS as a civil rights agency is as critically needed and valuable now as it was when the organization was founded.
Please help us to celebrate this special agency’s anniversary and its civil rights accomplishments toward advancing the Fair Housing agenda and challenging discrimination on Long Island. We are so pleased to be honoring civil rights super attorney Frederick K. Brewington, And, to especially highlight our 50 year history, we’ll honor Maxine D. Wilson, consummate Fair Housing organizer/advocate and posthumously, Claire and Joseph Greene for their vision and combined 35+ years of dedicated service. Come meet/greet our Honorees as well as LIHS’ former Executive Directors, and current and past Board and Staff members!
In addition to the serious lack of housing options in all communities, discrimination is still a pervasive problem faced by many in their housing search especially because of race, disability, ethnicity, gender, income source and children. Seniors, young professionals, college students and the economically disadvantaged are among those who face significant challenges trying to secure affordable, safe, and inviting housing on Long Island. In 2019, discrimination should not be an additional hurdle for those looking for homes.
Please join us in demanding and supporting equal and fair treatment for all. Your time, your monetary contributions and your support of our agency can make a tremendous impact on the quality of life of your Long Island neighbors.
