Every April, REALTORS® commemorates the passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968 with events and education that shine a light on housing discrimination and segregation. Fair Housing Month signifies a recommitment to expanding equal access to housing.
Discrimination in the real estate industry is real and ongoing. You, as community leaders, have the opportunity to be a part of the transformative solution, providing equal service to all.
April is Fair Housing Month and a great time to affirm you’re helping to build thriving, inclusive communities.
PFAR Commemorates the passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968. To help celebrate this month, we provide you with educational links that can help you affirm that you’re helping build all-inclusive and thriving communities.
In the end, fair housing impacts all NAR members, all markets, and all neighborhoods. So check yourself. Educate yourself, and hold yourself accountable because That’s Who We R®.
