NAREB Home Buyer Expo celebrating 50th anniversary of Fair Housing.
Come celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act at the NAREB Home Buyer Expo! We will have vendors, guest speakers and home buyer education.
In recognition of the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act (April 11, 2018), NAREB will host a series of events and activities throughout the year. These efforts will seek to educate and inspire the public about the never-ending struggle for equality, Democracy in Housing, and NAREB’s role in the landmark effort.
On April 11, 1968, one week after the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., President Lyndon B. Johnson, signed the Fair Housing Act into Law to end or quell the civil unrest, protests and riots in many U.S. cities. NAREB national and local leaders were instrumental in pushing for and litigating to ensure the full implementation of the Fair Housing Law. The signing of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1968, which came to be known as the Fair Housing Law not only prohibited discrimination in housing on the basis of race, color, creed, and national origin, but also helped to expand business and career opportunities for Black Americans operating in the real estate industry and those interested entering the real estate profession.
