Frederick County Association of Realtors® Commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act
For decades, Realtors® have supported a free, open market that embraces fairness and equal opportunity for all buyers and sellers. Members of the Frederick County Association of Realtors® (FCAR) strongly support the Fair Housing Act. The legislation was first passed in 1968 and now prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status and national origin.
This year, Realtors® from Frederick Maryland will join Realtors® across the country to embark on a yearlong commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act to raise awareness for fair housing issues.
“Realtors® continue to recognize the significance of this important act and reconfirm our commitment to upholding fair housing law, as well as our commitment to offering equal professional service to all in their search for a home or property. Realtors® work hard to build strong communities and neighborhoods where all people can live and prosper,” said Greg Phillips, President of FCAR.
Over the years, NAR has developed educational information on diversity and fair housing laws, programs and resources that have helped educate Realtors® across the country on the importance of inclusive housing practices and the promotion of diverse homeownership. During the yearlong commemoration, NAR will further examine community fair housing issues and advocate for changes to the Fair Housing Act to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Realtors® will focus on three key elements in 2018: 1. acknowledging the organization’s changing role in the fight for fair housing, 2. understanding how we as a nation are constantly improving our commitment to fair housing, and 3. ways Realtors® strive to lead efforts to address fair housing policy issues.
