The AFFH Rider

Civil Rights Practice Group Teleforum

Listen & Download

Although the Obama administration’s controversial Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule has not yet been enforced in the manner originally envisioned, it has the potential to be as transformative as the Affordable Care Act. America’s system of local government would be significantly altered by aggressive enforcement of AFFH, leaving potent implications for the federalist system itself.
This teleforum will examine the workings and ambitions of AFFH, will clear up confusion about the current state of the rule, will challenge the legal history of the rule promulgated by its supporters, and will sketch out the transformative potential of the rule under a future administration.
