Every April, REALTORS® commemorate the passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968 with events and education that shine a light on housing discrimination and segregation. Fair Housing Month signifies a recommitment to expanding equal access to housing.
Discrimination in the real estate industry is real and ongoing. You, as community leaders, have the opportunity to be a part of the transformative solution, providing equal service to all.
April is Fair Housing Month and a great time to affirm you’re helping to build thriving, inclusive communities. Fair housing impacts all NAR members, all markets, and all neighborhoods.
Check yourself. Educate yourself. Hold yourself accountable. Because That’s Who We R®.

Fair Housing Book Recommendations
Residential segregation in America didn’t happen by accident. Americans of different races live apart because of deliberate actions by public and private actors. NAR compiled this collection of fair housing titles to help members deepen their understanding of how we became divided, and of the ramifications of living in a segregated society.
Fair Housing Film and Video Recommendations
Short videos, documentaries, and a feature length major motion picture to help educate about housing discrimination, segregation, and the people working to correct these social and economic wrongs. Also, please visit the videos section of the nar.realtor/fair-housing page for additional videos produced by NAR highlighting our advocacy efforts and legal guidance on fair housing.

Spotlight on Local and National Fair Organizations
Fair housing organizations work in communities across the country, as well as at the state and national levels, to educate the public about fair housing, investigate claims of discrimination, and push for policies that promote housing rights. They work in partnership with governments and private housing providers to promote best practices to prevent discrimination and foster diverse, inclusive communities.
