April is Fair Housing Month

The month of April marks an annual recognition of Fair Housing, celebrating the passage of the 1968 Fair Housing Act that prohibits housing discrimination and drawing attention both to the challenges that remain in housing and the progressive achievements to ensure Americans equal access to housing options.  Because community is so central to the work and lives of our members, REALTORS® are key champions of ‘inviting and sustaining diversity.’ We know first-hand that communities with broad opportunity and inclusion are the most vibrant. Please take time this April to join your industry and community peers in promoting neighborhood diversity and revitalization, and in encouraging diversity in the leadership of your communities and your associations. Consider hosting an NAR ‘At Home with Diversity’ seminar, and read and share the REALTOR® Fair Housing Declaration.
