Newport Daily News: GUEST VIEW: End Source of Income Discrimination in R.I.
Low-income Rhode Islanders face many barriers to accessing housing including the rising cost of rent and a shortage of apartments — especially affordable ones that are close to critical resources like transit, jobs, or family and friends. But did you know that many Rhode Islanders also must overcome discrimination for the very resources they rely on to make their housing cost affordable? It's called Source of Income Discrimination and, unlike in Massachusetts and Connecticut, it's perfectly legal in Rhode Island.
