The Fair Housing Act of 1968 marked its 50th anniversary in April, 2018. Through the Fair Housing Act, more Americans have obtained the dream of home ownership in neighborhoods of their choosing.
The legislation makes it illegal for housing providers, realtors, mortgage companies and others to discriminate based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability or the presence of children.
Attempts at fair housing in America began in the mid-1800s but it wasn’t until the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s that real change took place. The Fair Housing Act of 1968 was groundbreaking legislation that was established one week after the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr.
