The future is our story to write. Be a catalyst for change. 2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act. While progress has been made, there's more work to be done. What can you do? Redouble your efforts to understand fair housing laws and how your actions, words and understanding of the issues impact housing choice. And when you see discrimination, challenge it. Report it. Engage in community dialogue about the issues tied to housing choices, like schools, healthy communities, residential displacement and economic opportunity. Be informed, and take action to expand protections to groups who continue to experience discrimination, such as the LGBTQ community. By protecting the rights to housing — free from discrimination for ALL people, the Fair Housing Act preserves and advances opportunities for everyone. As the REALTOR ® community, let's take ownership of fair housing rights and uphold the promise of the Fair Housing Act. Visit www.FairHousing.realtor to read more about what you can do and to join the commemoration.
