I've suffered housing discrimination

The information below is from the Oregon State Bar's Tel-law service, a collection of recorded legal information messages prepared by the lawyers of Oregon.

Federal law protects you from being discriminated against for your race, color, national origin, religion, sex, family status, and physical and mental disability. Oregon law also forbids these kinds of discrimination.

Welcome to Hacienda CDC!
"Hacienda Community Development Corporation is a 501C-3 non-profit organization formed in 1992 to address the affordable housing needs existing in Oregon.

Hacienda's mission is "To improve the overall livability of low-income Latino families by developing a permanent resource of affordable housing..."

"...fulfilling the core elements of our mission to create a safe and flourishing community in which Latinos and other working families can afford to live."

Since I don't have a law degree to sue these people I figured I would at least complain. As a non-Latino I do not believe that I am welcome to live in these housing developments. (although maybe my wife could get me in if these racists aren't opposed to mixed-race marriage)
