  • "Landlords and Drug-Dealing" The Tucson Police Dept. has just instituted a Landlord Training Program, the ostensible purpose of which is to help landlords identify and evict "potential" drug dealers and users from their properties. The program is modeled after one in Portland, Oregon. The So. Ariz. People's Law Ctr. (a PRRAC grantee) reports that the program materials are extraordinarily racist in their stereotyping, and that the effect of the program is to actively encourage housing discrimination against single women with children, minorities and low-income people. An ad hoc coalition has been formed to fight the program. Contact Linda Bohlke at the Ctr. (606 N. Fourth Ave., Tucson, AZ 85705, 602/623-7306) for further details, or if you have information on similar programs in other cities. [6492]
