By: Fair Housing Helper
April 11, 2010 - PRLog -- Hicksville, N.Y. – Fairhousingblog.com is doing its part to commemorate the passage of the Fair Housing Act (FHA), the landmark civil rights legislation that was signed into law 42 years ago today by President Lyndon B. Johnson, with a "Fair Housing Month Special Feature." The blog's Special Feature is a 30-part series of original posts, one for each day of April 2010.

Since 1968, government leaders and agencies, housing advocacy groups, and other organizations and individuals have proclaimed April as a time to highlight the protections the FHA has afforded Americans while promoting increased compliance with the law on the part of property owners, managers, and other housing professionals.

The Special Feature began with a post on why April is Fair Housing Month (http://www.fairhousingblog.com/2010/04/fair-housing-month-why-april-is-fair.html), and covers a range of topics, including how different states are promoting fair housing awareness, new government enforcement activity, an explanation of the FHA's so-called "protected classes," a roundup of free online fair housing quizzes, and more. Readers are encouraged to comment on all posts included in the Special Feature as well as in the rest of the blog.
