REALTOR® Resources for Fair Housing Month
March 31, 2022
Every April, REALTORS® commemorate the passage of 1968’s Fair Housing Act through education and events that shine a light on housing discrimination—both the struggles of the past and the current challenges many still face today. Fair Housing impacts all REALTORS®, all markets, and all neighborhoods.
Fair Housing Month signifies a recommitment to expanding equal access to housing. To contribute to this important initiative, we encourage all Virginia REALTORS® to utilize the Fair Housing resources the National Association of REALTORS® is providing for this year’s commemoration.
Whether you prefer reading, viewing, or listening on-the-go, NAR has resources to help YOU in your efforts to help ensure that Fair Housing is, indeed, fair.
Fair Housing Book Recommendations:
We’ve promoted Richard Rothstein’s eye-opening book The Color of Law before, but this year’s list of recommendations contains several other illuminating reads, as well. From a provocative look at racism within America’s residential patterns, to a New York Times Best Seller exploring our nation’s hidden caste system, this year’s list contains enlightening works that offer new perspectives.
Fair Housing Videos:
NAR’s Fair Housing page includes a library of concise Fair Housing-related videos that cover everything from Criminal Background Checks, to Buyer Love Letters, to real-life testimonies from those who have taken on injustice in the real estate industry. Check out the collection here.
Fair Housing Podcasts:
REALTORS® are always on the go—so why not use that time to expand your Fair Housing know-how? This year, NAR has curated a collection of specific podcast episodes (with direct links) that will help educate you on Fair Housing.
