parkinsons proclamation-4-5-22-3At its April 5 meeting, the Golden Valley City Council approved proclamations for Fair Housing Month and Parkinson's Awareness Month.

Fair Housing Month

Fair Housing Month is celebrated in communities around the country in the month of April as it marks the 54th anniversary of the passage of the Federal Fair Housing Law of 1968, declaring discrimination in the sale, rental or financing of housing based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin as unlawful.

In April 2020, the City of Golden Valley, through its Housing and Redevelopment Authority, adopted a Fair Housing Policy to ensure that fair and equal housing opportunities are available to all persons in all housing opportunities and development activities funded by the City regardless of race, color, religion, immigration status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, creed, familial status, national origin, cultural background, age, or disability. The passing of this proclamation further expresses the City's commitment to fair housing.

The Golden Valley City Council hereby declares April to be Fair Housing Month in the City of Golden Valley.

Parkinson's Awareness Month

Parkinson’s disease is a chronic, progressive, neurological disease and is the second most common neurodegenerative disease in the United States. It's estimated to affect approximately one million people in the United States while being the 14th leading cause of death in the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Present to accept the proclamation was Chris Patrick of The Parkinson's Foundation (see image).

The Golden Valley City Council hereby declares April to be Parkinson's Awareness Month in the City of Golden Valley.
