 Fair Housing is your right - Use it!

NFHA Creates Online Fair Housing Resource Library - the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) announced that it has assembled an online library of resources related to fair housing rights and obligations. The free resource library is divided into four sections:

· Print PSAs on the topics of race and color, religion, sex and sexual harassment, familial status, disability, and diversity and inclusion, and available in several languages, including English, Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, Korean, Russian, Tagalog, and Vietnamese

· Brochures on fair housing for persons with disabilities, families with children, and other topics, available in English and Spanish

· Radio PSAs on topics including disability, diversity and inclusion, and familial status, available in English and Spanish

· TV PSAs focusing on the theme of "Fair Housing is Your Right. Use It," available in English and Spanish

You'll find more information about the NFHA materials, many of which were funded through grants from HUD, in their 2014 catalog of fair housing PSAs and resources. Because the catalog has not yet been posted to the NFHA Web site, we've uploaded it to the NMA blog for your convenience. You can access it here.
