Fair Housing protects the right to own, use and transfer private property. It relies on equal opportunity and a free, open market. REALTORS® are stewards of these protections. They stand together in a commitment to fair housing for all – a commitment that strengthens the industry, the community and our country.
Our country’s vibrant mix of cultures is what makes us great and gives us strength. It makes us who we are. April 2018 marked the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act. We recognize that any progress that has been made stands on the shoulders of generations that preceded us. People marched in unwelcome cities, protested in contentious environments, challenged discriminatory practices, and fought quietly in legislative sessions and community gatherings. History is written, but the future is ours to write. We understand there is still work to be done. Today we work to address continuing discrimination and to protect the L.G.B.T.Q. community in the Fair Housing Act. We work for the day when everyone will have the opportunity to experience the American dream. There is no America without diversity.
