Your Rights and Responsibilities


Were you treated fairly the last time you tried to rent an apartment or purchase a home? The Fair Housing Act of 1968, and subsequent amendments, prohibits discrimination in housing based on race or color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. Everyone deserves a fair chance.

Here are videos about these topics in various languages. FHIC Fair Housing Videos
