Antoine Lynch is having a hard time finding an affordable place to live. That is, until the DC government provided him with a housing voucher that guaranteed partial payment of his monthly rent. But, when he called around to housing complexes where he wanted to live - apartments that were in neighborhoods with grocery stores, good schools, and low crime rates - the landlords told him they wouldn’t accept his voucher. Antoine is facing what’s called source of income discrimination, and it’s illegal. Now he’s filing a discrimination complaint with the DC Office of Human Rights, hoping to eventually settle the issue and find that stability he wants.
