compensation: $50 mailed prepaid Visa gift card, Venmo, or PayPal

Have you had to deal with any of the following problems:

- A landlord asking you about your income and then refusing to rent to you after finding out you’d be using a Section 8 voucher?
- Difficulty finding housing that you believe was the result of landlords not wanting to take Section 8 vouchers?
- A housing voucher that expired or almost expired because you were having difficulty finding someone who would rent to you?

I am recruiting a few people to talk to me for an hour about problems they have experienced with loans, housing, or in the workplace. I will provide a $50 payment via Venmo or PayPal to thank you for your time. I work for Public Rights Project, a non-profit organization that helps protect civil rights and fights for economic and environmental justice.

The interviews are part of research we are doing to help better understand the harms that people experience when looking for housing, and the decisions that they make about how to address them.

I am planning to do the interviews beginning 5/19 via phone call or video call.

Please reply if interested with your email and/or cell phone number and I’ll send you a few quick questions about your situation before setting something up. Unfortunately, I can’t provide legal advice or assistance.

Thanks!
