April is Fair Housing Month!
The Federal Fair Housing Act protects citizens against discrimination in housing based on race, color, national origin, disability, familial status, religion, and sex. Housing discrimination often comes with “a smile and a handshake.” While commonly experienced, discrimination can be subtle, friendly and often difficult to pin down. The Fair Housing Center of Southeastern Michigan works to ensure that citizens are living where they would like and not where others say they should. If you have any reason to believe that you have been the victim of housing discrimination, you can call the Fair Housing Center at (877) 979-FAIR to discuss the situation.
