Celebrate 50 Years Of The Fair Housing Act

. August 31, 2018.
Toledo Free Housing Center

One week after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Fair Housing Act (Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968) was passed, making the discriminatory behavior of home sellers and landlords federally prohibited. Since then, the act has expanded to include discrimination based on disability, familial status, sex, sexual orientation and gender identity. Celebrate 50 years of hard work and persistence by joining The Fair Housing Center for the Ohio Fair Housing Summit. Panelists and speakers will discuss why fair housing matters, what barriers still persist, and what more we can do to fight discrimination.
