Human Rights

April is Fair Housing Month
Each April, we come together as a community and as a nation to celebrate the anniversary of the passing of the Fair Housing Act. The Act was passed shortly after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination in 1968 in order to eliminate housing discrimination and create equal opportunity in every community.
If you feel you are being discriminated against when seeking housing, we can help.  Contact us at (812) 376-2532.
