Think Fair, Sell Fair, Be Fair
Although we once naively believed fairness would be the inevitable result of having declared that all are created equal, experience has shown us that it is not so. The Civil Rights Act of 1866 prohibited all racial discrimination in the sale or rental of property, but more specific legislation was needed to accomplish its noble goals. A century later, President Lyndon Johnson signed into law the Civil Rights Act of 1968. Title VIII of this Act, which is known as the Fair Housing Act, declared a national policy of fair housing throughout the United States. Because this Act was signed on April 11, April has since been celebrated as Fair Housing Month. Featured in this May/June issue of OC REALTOR© are articles to help REALTORS® celebrate fair housing every day and educate themselves and others regarding how to recognize and prevent discriminatory practices in real estate.
