I recently responded to a newspaper advertisement for a one-bedroom apartment and I was told it had already been rented. How can I verify if discrimination was practiced against me?

You can contact the city’s Fair Housing office, and the city can undertake “testing” to find out if the landlord treats persons of other races differently.
