Fair Housing Month
Observed each April to commemorate the landmark 1968 Fair Housing Act in which U.S. law was established that prohibited discrimination in housing.

Annually, NAR creates a poster that state and local real estate associations may print, use or distribute to promote the REALTOR® commitment to Fair Housing. You are authorized to print and distribute the Fair Housing Month Poster. It can be printed 18 x 24 or 9 x 12.
Fair Housing Month Poster on shelf
Show you support equal opportunity in housing by displaying this declaration of following fair housing laws and your commitment to provide professional service with the REALTOR® Fair Housing Declaration.
Fair Housing Book Recommendations
Residential segregation in America didn’t happen by accident. Americans of different races live apart because of deliberate actions by public and private actors. NAR compiled this collection of fair housing titles to help members deepen their understanding of how we became divided, and of the ramifications of living in a segregated society.

Don’t have time to read an entire book? Each recommendation also includes book reviews, interviews, videos and other tools to give you a quick recap.

Most are available to REALTOR® members on Overdrive and can be found at local libraries in our communities for anyone.
