What is Fair Housing?
Fair Housing is the right to choose housing free from unlawful discrimination. As you may know, federal housing policies in the early to middle 20th century were littered with racist and discriminatory practices.
Starting in the late 1960’s, federal, state and local fair housing laws emerged to protect people from discrimination in housing transactions. It ensures access for everyone. Fair housing is the key to all people having the roof they want over their heads. It guarantees that regardless of your age, race, religion, family situation, or level of ability, you have the right to choose the housing that’s best for your needs - with no outside preferences or stereotypes being imposed.
