Fair Housing Month

Please note: To request an NAR speaker for a Fair Housing Month event, please submit an Outreach Request by February 15, 2024.

Every April, REALTORS® commemorate the passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968 and reflect on housing discrimination and segregation, past and present. As community leaders, real estate professionals have an opportunity to be a part of equitable and inclusive change. Fair Housing Month signifies a recommitment to advancing equitable opportunities and expanding homeownership.

Reflect. Repair. Renew. Because That’s Who We R®.
