HUD seeks to educate public on fair housing

Apr 06, 2015
April is Fair Housing Month and the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) is signifying the event by launching a national media campaign that sets out to help the public recognize housing discrimination and teach them what to do if their housing rights are ever violated. The campaign coincides with the 47th anniversary of the passage of the 1968 Fair Housing Act.
 
The new campaign includes print and digital PSAs in various languages, training presentations, webinars, brochures, online videos, as well as social media outreach. This year it also addresses the hurdles families can sometimes encounter when purchasing a home in English and Spanish as well as the types of discrimination veterans sometimes face.
