Attorneys are expecting a wave of new divorce filings once the coronavirus quarantine subsides. More numbers; there is an increase in domestic violence, child abuse, and sexual harassment reports.
Lisa Rice, President & CEO of the National Fair Housing Alliance speaks about the 300% increase in sexual harassment cases reported. The majority of these cases are reported by Black and Latinx women, who face inappropriate behavior from landlords and building supers.
Landlords who ask for sexual favors in exchange for rent are violating fair housing laws. No one has to be a victim of sexual harassment. Fair housing laws protect against discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. #MeToo #COVID19 1/2https://t.co/7NxK2GNvJ3
