April is National Fair Housing Month!

Did you know that April is National Fair Housing Month?

National Fair Housing Month celebrates the passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968, which prohibited discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, and familial status in the sale or rental of housing. The Act was passed in the aftermath of the Civil Rights struggles and the assassination of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
