April is Fair Housing Month, commemorating the anniversary of President Johnson signing the Fair Housing Act into law on April 11th, 1968

Forty-nine years later we have come a long way toward eradicating housing discrimination. We now have laws on the books prohibiting discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, familial status, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, source of income and history of domestic violence. Unfortunately, while we now have laws to protect us, more discrimination persists and FHCO receives almost 2,000 calls annually on our discrimination hotline.
