PUBLIC NOTICE FAIR HOUSING
Fair Housing is a national policy of the United States, its the law, and its your right. Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended, along with the Louisiana Open Housing Act (La. R.S.51:2601-2614) makes discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, family status or national origin illegal in connection with the sale or rental of most housing and any vacant land offered for residential construction or use. Today, more than ever, America is closer to upholding the inalienable right of all citizens to live where they choose, when they choose, or for as long as they choose and can afford to do so. Yet, this year, as many as two million people who want to rent or buy a home will be discriminated against because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, families with children, or national origin. You can do something about housing discrimination. In addition, information concerning AThe Louisiana Open Housing Act@ and your rights can be obtained by contacting Louisiana Department of Justice, Public Protection Division, P. O. Box 94095, Baton Rouge, LA 70804, or by calling 1-800-273-5718.
