2023 marks the 55th anniversary of the passage of the Fair Housing Act, the landmark civil rights law signed into law on April 11, 1968. The Fair Housing Act of 1968 made discrimination in housing transactions unlawful. The Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), disability, and familial status. For more information about fair housing rights, visit the Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity website: FHEO’s website.
