Louisville Brings Attention to The Benefits of Fair Housing

Louisville campaign reminds everyone that although there has been a lot of progress in the 50 years since the Fair Housing Act, there is still work to be done.

By Anthony SanFilippo

Members and REALTORS® of the Greater Louisville Association of REALTORS® (GLAR) are dedicated to helping everyone find a place to call home – without barriers.

That’s why they have spent 2018 commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act by reminding everyone in the Louisville area the important message that Fair Housing sends and its positive impact on the Louisville community.

GLAR has created and shared a pair of videos to highlight why fair housing remains as important an initiative in 2018 as it was in 1968. They work to ensure it is advocated for on a daily basis.

These videos are used to remind everyone in the Louisville area that REALTORS® are focused on creating opportunities and ending discrimination not just because it’s the law but because it’s the right thing to do.

They are also reminding everyone that although there has been a lot of progress in the 50 years since the Fair Housing Act, there is still work to be done. GLAR is committed to work together and stand for fair housing and equal opportunity, because there is no community without “unity” and everyone deserves a place to call home.
