Fair Housing | Abayomi

Seven Days

In April of 1968, seven days changed fair housing forever. The National Fair Housing Alliance and Nationwide tell an important story about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and one of the most important civil rights struggles in our nation’s history.

Fair Housing is not an option, it’s the law.

In 1968 the United States government enacted the Fair Housing Act which prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of dwellings, and in other housing-related transactions, based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability and familial status.

The purpose of the Fair Housing Act is to eliminate discrimination and ensure everyone is treated equally in both the sale and rental of housing.

Housing discrimination doesn’t always mean having a door slammed in your face or a bigoted remark directed your way. Unsuspecting renters or home buyers may be politely turned away from the housing of their choice, even though they are qualified.

If you feel like you have been treated unfairly in the home buying or renting process, please contact our agency at 313-541-9828 or contact the Fair Housing Center of Metropolitan Detroit at 313-963-1274 or the National Fair Housing Alliance.
