Event Details

September 2017 Fair Housing Conference

“Selling Fair Housing” – Assuring Continued Support for Fair Housing

April 2018 will be the fiftieth anniversary of the federal Fair Housing Act.  The state of fair housing law was very different in 1968.  But many of the same conditions that led to the passage of the Fair Housing Act are still with us today, and new conditions demonstrate that there continues to be a need for the Fair Housing Act.  The passage of the Fair Housing Act in 1968 was a major triumph.  The passage of the Fair Housing Amendments Act in 1988 further advanced the enforcement of fair housing and demonstrated that fair housing is a bi-partisan goal.    

Today, many persons would correctly argue that America has changed.  But does this mean we no longer need vigorous fair housing enforcement?  Despite the obvious successes of the Fair Housing Act, American cities are still segregated and discrimination still occurs.  As recently as 2015 in Texas Department of Housing v. Inclusive Communities, Justice Kennedy recognized the continuing need for vigorous fair housing enforcement.
