Fair Housing Makes US Stronger: Commemorating 50 Years of the Fair Housing Act

Fair Housing Act

Fair housing is more than a list of dos and don’ts, rights and penalties, and mandatory continuing education. As stewards of the right to own, use and transfer private property, fair housing protects our livelihood and business as REALTORS® and depends on a free, open market that embraces equal opportunity. Fair Housing Makes US Stronger.

50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act

In 2018 the National Association of REALTORS® will join with our partners and allies in a year-long commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act. The commemoration will focus on three key elements of Fair Housing:

  • Acknowledging the organization’s past role in the fight for fair housing;
  • Understanding how we as a nation are constantly improving our commitment to fair housing; and
  • Embracing REALTORS®’ role at the forefront of advancing fair housing, leading efforts to address community fair housing issues.
