Texas Workforce Commission representative, William Cooper, will discuss the role REALTORS® play in reasonable accommodation and how HUD could hold them accountable. He will also go over what a TWC Investigator will be looking for related to REALTORS® actions in transaction and ways you could be held in violation of the Act.

About William Cooper:
Mr. Cooper is a veteran of the U.S. Navy and Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) where he served for 29 years. He was appointed to the Texas Workforce Commission-Civil Rights Division in 2020. Mr. Cooper has committed his life to public service and embraces the idea that, through continuous education and outreach with all participants of the housing industry, we can strengthen the relationships between TWC-CRD and the housing communities it serves, resulting in better service for all Texans. As gatekeepers of the Act, the goal is to build “Bridges Not Walls” with Texas front-line housing providers and to break down the “us vs them” mentality while gaining a true understanding of both TWC and housing industry roles in the process.
