48 years of Prohibiting Discrimination

48 years of Prohibiting Discrimination
Forty-eight years ago this month, on April 11, 1968, President Lyndon Johnson signed the federal Fair Housing Act, which prohibited discrimination concerning the sale, rental, and financing of housing based on race, religion, national origin, sex, handicap and family status. This important law also made it unlawful for a housing provider to make, print or publish any statement or advertisement that states a preference based on these classes. Let us not forget this eventful day by reminding people we know of the current state of the law and the  rights afforded to victims of discrimination.  http://www.oak-park.us/news/april-fair-housing-month
