Why Fair Housing Month?

Every April, we come together as a community and a nation to celebrate the anniversary of the passage of the Fair Housing Act and recommit to that goal which inspired us in the aftermath of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination in 1968: To eliminate housing discrimination and create equal opportunity in every community. This means that each one of us, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, familial status, and disability, has access to neighborhoods of opportunity, where our children can attend quality schools, our environment allows us to be healthy, and economic opportunities and self-sufficiency can grow.
At the Georgia Department of Community Affairs, our commitment to fair housing is ongoing and enduring. Fair housing is an integral part of building strong, vibrant communities.
In the following pages you will find Fair Housing logos, content, FAQs and links to HUD resources compiled by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs. We hope you will use this toolkit to help us promote Fair Housing Month. You can find additional resources, including Print PSAs, Radio PSAs, and TV PSAs at the Fair Housing Resource Center.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
