The Ann Arbor Area Board of REALTORS® (AAABoR) is partnering with the Fair Housing Center to support the 2021 REALTORS® for Fair Housing Campaign.
“We are asking local REALTORS® to publicly pledge their support for the letter and the spirit of fair housing law,” said Tom Renkert, Chief Executive Officer, Ann Arbor Area Board of REALTORS®. “We understand what an important role REALTORS® have in ending discrimination, and we stand by our Code of Ethics and commitment to diverse communities.”
Funds raised from this investment go to supporting the Fair Housing Center’s mission to end discrimination in housing and public accommodations and to promote accessible, integrated communities.
This April, the nation will be celebrating the 52nd Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act. This landmark civil rights legislation was the result of years of individual and collective struggle against discrimination in sales, rental, financing and other housing-related transactions. The Act now protects the buyer or renter of a dwelling from discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, and familial status.
