"Call HUD:  Because Sexual Harassment in

Housing is Illegal" 

 

April is Fair Housing Month, a time when we celebrate the Fair Housing Act and recommit ourselves to ensuring every American has access to housing that is free from discrimination. The Fair Housing Act makes it unlawful to discriminate in housing transactions based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, or family status. This year, HUD is especially focused on protecting the right of individuals to feel safe and secure in their homes, free from sexual harassment or unwanted sexual advances. Fairfield County recognizes April as National Fair Housing Month and desires that its citizens be afforded the opportunity to obtain Fair Housing Choice without the occurrence of discrimination and rejects discrimination in the provision of housing on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disablity or familial status.
