Fair Housing Month begins on April 1!

April is right around the corner, and this year it marks the 49th anniversary of the 1968 landmark Fair Housing Act, which prohibits housing discrimination and draws attention both to the challenges that remain in housing and the progressive achievements to ensure Americans enjoy 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. Make a plan to share your Fair Housing commitment as April 1st approaches. 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. Stay tuned for updates as local associations host special housing forums throughout the month to promote Fair Housing and homeownership access for all Virginians.
