APRIL IS FAIR HOUSING MONTH
April 11th marks the 52nd Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act.
Each April, REALTORS® observe the anniversary of the passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968 with events designed to educate about housing discrimination and segregation, and to recommit to expanding equal access to housing. This year, NAR is providing members with information and tools to observe Fair Housing Month at home.
Stand together virtually to show your commitment to fair housing! Join the events
from your home with NAR's Fair Housing @ Home toolkit, which includes book, film, and video recommendations, along with podcasts you can listen to.
Fair Housing Book Recommendations:
Residential segregation in America didn’t happen by accident. Americans of different racial backgrounds live apart because of deliberate actions by public and private actors. NAR’s Director of Federal Fair Housing Policy, Bryan Greene, compiled a collection of fair housing titles to help NAR members deepen their understanding of how we became divided, and of the ramifications of living in a segregated society. Don’t have time to read an entire book? Each recommendation also includes book reviews, interviews, videos and other tools to give you a quick recap.
Fair Housing Film and Video Recommendations:
Short videos, documentaries, and a featured length major motion picture help educate about housing discrimination, segregation, and the people working to correct these social and economic wrongs.
Fair Housing Podcasts:
Like to learn about the world from podcasts? We’ve got you covered. From This American Life to The Bowery Boys, NAR presents podcasts that will educate you on Fair Housing.
