Celebrating Fifty Years of Fair Housing Law

Posted on April 11, 2018 at 4:06 pm by Dawn Corrigan

Today is the fiftieth anniversary of the Fair Housing Act, which made equal opportunity housing into federal law by prohibiting discrimination in the sale, rental, or financing of housing based on race, color, religion, gender, disability, familial status, or national origin.

Pensacola Housing recognizes there is still much work to do before the promise of Fair Housing becomes a reality for all. We remain committed to our mission of supporting a diverse, viable community that provides decent, safe housing and a suitable living environment for all Escambia County residents.
