NFHA Celebrates Fair Housing Month
Fair Housing Act at 55
It’s National Fair Housing Month! The sobering reality is that 55 years after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the passage of the federal Fair Housing Act, the U.S. still has unfair systems that perpetuate racial wealth and homeownership gaps. The number of housing discrimination complaints has risen to unprecedented levels, and America’s neighborhoods are more segregated now than they were in 1918. Dr. King’s call for fair housing rings just as true today, 55 years after his death. In his honor, the National Fair Housing Alliance has committed the entire year to Advancing a Blueprint for Equity to eliminate housing discrimination and ensure equitable housing opportunities for all people and communities. During the month of April, we will host and participate in events, and share information that shines a light on housing discrimination and segregation, continuing our ongoing efforts to build a more equitable society.
