Fair Housing Center for Rights & Research

CLEVELAND, OH: The Fair Housing Center for Rights & Research is a not for profit fair housing agency that promotes equal housing opportunities and positive race relations in Northeast Ohio. Our mission is to protect and expand fair housing rights, eliminate housing discrimination, and promote integrated communities. We advance our mission through advocacy, enforcement, education and research.
 

This past April, we celebrated 53 years since the federal Fair Housing Act was passed on April 11, 1968.

There have been significant strides in the road to equitable housing since its passage. Take the recent Executive Order signed by President Biden, affirming that discrimination against people based upon their sexual orientation or gender identity is sex discrimination.

 The Fair Housing Act makes it illegal to discriminate in the sale or rental of housing related transactions on the bases of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status and disability. Yet even with the housing equality victories over the years, housing discrimination persists throughout the country and in Northeast Ohio.

The Fair Housing Center regularly receives complaints of housing discrimination and estimates that there are over 30,000 instances of housing discrimination annually in the region. Housing discrimination results in barriers to living in the home of your choice. Where you lie matters. Where you live is a direct determinant of your access to quality schools, healthcare, jobs and even your exposure to environmental health hazards.

As housing discrimination continues, there is more work to be done to advance housing equality for all.  Join us in advocating for the expansion of fair housing rights and equal housing opportunities. Start by learning more about the barriers to fair housing in our region, in our recent State of Fair Housing in Northeast Ohio report online at www.thehousingcenter.org.
