Education and Outreach
High School Outreach
One form of outreach the Salina Human Relations Department uses is to make presentations to high school classes. It is our goal to reach teens who are about to enter into the "real world" with information that will help them avoid bad experiences with rental properties and landlords. To schedule one of our fun, interactive presentations, call Outreach Specialst Darrin Stineman at 309-5745 or e-mail him by clicking here.
Students at Southeast of Saline High School work on an exercise that will help them learn about fair-housing laws.
Middle School Outreach
Sandra Beverly, Dina Girón and Darrin Stineman make presentations to middle-school classes to give them some perspective with regard to labeling, discrimination and appreciation for other cultures. Dina talks about her experience coming to the United States from El Salvador, and Sandy shares her experiences about having to go to a segregated school in Georgia and then being chosen as one of the students who were integrated into the white school. To schedule a presentation, call Outreach Specialst Darrin Stineman at 309-5745 or e-mail him by clicking here.

Fair Housing Workshops
Each April, the Salina Human Relations
Department conducts a Fair Housing Workshop at the Bicentennial Center.
The event typically draws about 30 landlords from the Salina area and
includes speakers who address key issues in housing. For more
information on the event, call Kat Livingood at 309-5745 or e-mail her
