FHP Tester Application

It may be difficult to imagine how you, as one person, can stand up to injustice and protect rights within your own community. Fair Housing Testing gives citizens the opportunity to make concrete and immediate change.  With each test, you will be rooting out discrimination and safeguarding rights—right here, right now, and into the future.


If you are interested in advocating for social justice, gaining volunteer hours in a local nonprofit, and earning $50 for each time that you volunteer, fill out the application below.
