April is Fair Housing Month

Today is the beginning of Fair Housing Month. The Fair Housing Act was enacted on April 11, 1968, making it unlawful to discriminate against any person based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or handicap in the sale or rental of a dwelling. Although brokers must comply with the Fair Housing Act every day, it is in the month of April that the Fair Housing Act should be commemorated. Print out the Fair Housing Declaration and hand it out to your fellow agents. Reread the Fair Housing Act, and do not forget to sign up and attend our Lieb School class on the Fair Housing Act on September 18, 2014 or December 10, 2014.
