HOUSING & SYSTEMIC RACISM
The Fair Housing Act of 1968, amended in 1988, prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, family status, and national origin. It was intended as a follow-up to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Despite the legislation, discrimination and systemic racism are still present in our housing policies.
