Fair housing is more than a list of dos and don’ts, rights and penalties, and mandatory continuing education. As stewards of the right to own, use and transfer private property, fair housing protects our livelihood and business as REALTORS® and depends on a free, open market that embraces equal opportunity. Fair Housing Makes US Stronger. In 2018, St. Louis REALTORS® joins National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and its fellows partners and allies to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act. The commemoration focuses on these main elements:
Understanding how we as a nation are constantly improving our commitment to fair housing and property rights by acknowledging our history and recognizing champions for fair housing. (January – March 2018)
Commemorating the passage of the Fair Housing Act and actions to realize the promise of the law. (April – May 2018)
Embracing our role in the forefront of advancing fair housing and leading efforts to address community fair housing issues. (June – December 2018)
Every month in 2018, NAR will release a month article outlining and commemorating several factors within the Fair Housing Act. Be sure to check out each new article as they’re circulated.
