    The Federal Fair Housing Act makes it illegal to discriminate in the rental, sale, financing, or insurance of housing based on: race/color, religion, national origin, sex (including sexual harassment), the presence of children, and physical or mental disability. Some local laws also prohibit housing discrimination based on marital status, age, sexual orientation, and gender identity. This ALSC Fair Housing Enforcement Project brochure describes who is protected and what is prohibited under the Fair Housing Act. The brochure also describes signs of housing discrimination and where to go for help. Read More
