This month HUD is commemorating the 56th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act, the landmark civil rights law signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson on April 11,1968, that made discrimination in housing transactions unlawful. Throughout Fair Housing Month, HUD and its partners will host activities that enhance public awareness of fair housing rights, highlight fair housing enforcement efforts, and emphasize the importance of addressing housing discrimination in all its forms.

Everyone is invited to attend this year’s virtual Fair Housing Month Opening Ceremony on Thursday, April 11 at 2 p.m. at:

This virtual event will highlight HUD’s progress toward protecting and expanding fair housing rights for all. The program will include remarks from the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for FHEO, Demetria McCain; the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy, Legislative Initiatives, and Outreach, Melody Taylor; and the President and CEO of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Damon Hewitt.  For additional information, visit the Fair Housing Month 2024 Website.
