Fair Housing poster contest kicks off in April

The Human Rights Commission of Fulton is organizing a poster contest to reach out to Fulton’s youth for Fair Housing Month in April.

The contest’s theme, “Fair Housing: Opening Doors — Unlocking Dreams,” must be written somewhere on the poster, which may be up to 11-by-17 inches in size. Poster board in that size is available at City Hall. Paintings, drawings, photography, collages, computer-generated art or any other two-dimensional medium is acceptable.

The Fulton Fair Housing Poster Contest will kick off with an informational registration meeting 6:30 p.m. April 3 in the John C. Harris Community Center. Refreshments will be provided.

Carmen Brandt of the Human Rights Commission said she hoped about 40 to 50 kids would participate. She said that in addition to providing a fun event for children and promoting the Fulton Housing Authority, she wanted the contest to bring awareness to the need of housing availability that wasn’t based on race, gender, age or other factors.

“They should be able to live anyplace that they want to live,” said Brandt. “There shouldn’t be any restrictions or discrimination in choosing the best housing.”
