Housing Discrimination Tester

Housing discrimination testers are reliable and detail-oriented people of all physical abilities, races, colors, nationalities, and religions. These volunteers work with our Housing Discrimination Law Project to investigate whether or not the people who have property to rent or sell treat all people who have the same qualifications fairly.

As a housing discrimination tester, you must be able to convincingly assume the role of someone seeking housing, and then provide a neutral, objective, and thorough report of what you observe.

Testers receive a cash stipend and mileage for each completed test.

Volunteers must be age 18 or older. The time commitment is very flexible. Most testers have full-time jobs or other service commitments.
