HUD's Donovan Marks Passage of Fair Housing Act

By Ed O'Keefe



Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan met today with employees of the Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity as they marked the 41st anniversary since passage of the Fair Housing Act, part of the 1968 Civil Rights Act that bans discrimination based on race, color, national origin, sex, religion, familial status, or disability when buying or renting property.

Employees also heard from the executive director of Central Alabama Fair Housing Center and a performance by the Duke Ellington School of the Arts Jazz Ensemble.
