50th Anniversary of Fair Housing Commemoration
In 2018, the National Association of REALTORS® will join with our partners and allies to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act.
The sale and purchase of a home is one of the most significant events that any person will experience in his or her lifetime. It is more that the simple purchase of housing, for it includes the hopes, dreams, aspirations, and economic destiny of those involved.
50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act
In 2018 the National Association of REALTORS® will join with our partners and allies in a year-long commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act. The commemoration will focus on three key elements of Fair Housing:
- Acknowledging the organization’s past role in the fight for fair housing;
- Understanding how we as a nation are constantly improving our commitment to fair housing; and
- Embracing REALTORS®’ role at the forefront of advancing fair housing, leading efforts to address community fair housing issues.
Fair Housing Act: The Fair Housing Act declares a national policy of fair housing throughout the United States. The law makes illegal any discrimination in the sale, lease or rental of housing, or making housing otherwise unavailable, because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.
