Do you think its fair for someone to be denied the home of their choice because of their race, disability, or because they have kids?

Then help us end housing discrimination. Become a fair housing tester.

Housing discrimination occurs when someone is denied housing based on his or her race, national origin, religion, children or family status, disability, age, veteran status, source of income, and more. Housing discrimination is ILLEGAL.
