HUD Kicks Off Fair Housing Month
In press release last Friday, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) kicked off Fair Housing Month 2022. Each April, HUD, local communities, and fair housing advocates and organizations celebrate Fair Housing Month by hosting various activities highlighting HUD’s enforcement efforts, enhancing public awareness of fair housing rights, and emphasizing the importance of creating diverse and inclusive communities.
According to the press release, this year’s theme, Fair Housing: More than Just Words, underscores the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment and progress toward advancing equity in housing and securing equal access to housing opportunities for all. Secretary Marcia L. Fudge and guests held a virtual celebration on April 5, 2022, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern time. The event showcased HUD’s efforts to advance and protect fair housing rights to ensure that all people have the right to obtain the housing of their choice, free from discrimination.
