Transcript June, 1975, Broadside NEW LAW'S AGAINST HOUSING DISCRIMINATION Do yot: know or women, who've been refused apartments, house loans, membership in realtor groups because of their sex? Well, the Justice Department has sent out an admirably clear and concise letter explaining the details of several laws prohibiting such discrimination. In broadest outlinej the Fair Housing Act of 1968, 42 U.S.C. cf 3601 et. seq. as amended August 22, 1974 now prohibits discrimination in housing on the basis of sex. This applies to such situations ae. 1 refusal to show, rent, or sell a dwelling; discriminatory conditions of sale or rental; discrimination in financing, such as refusal to consider a wife's full income in a loan application; discriminatory advertising of housing; and denial of membership in multiple listing services or larokers' organizations because of sex. There are two other laws which affect this area; the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 and the Equal Credit Opportunity Act of 1974, In effect, all sex discrimination is now ILLEGAI in the sale, rental, financing, advertising, and credit terms of housing. Complaints of discrimination should be directed to Chief of Housing Section, Civil Rights Division, U.S. Dept. of Justice, Washington, D.C. 20530. Donna Goldstein is head of the Sex Discrimination Unit of the Housing Section; she can be reached at (202; 739-^139. The Dept. of Housing and Urban Development has a toll-free number, 800-424-8590, that can be called far info on filing a complaint. It's also possible to go to court privately, and this would include having a group like NOW organize the complaint. Please get the ward out that housing discrimination is illegal. As individuals, you might ask the loan department at your bank if they are aware of this (they are, of course, but let them know that you are). Anyone who would like to wrirk in this areathrough NCW should call the Center or come to a Board meeting. The Houston Apartment Association has.a new mechanism for handling apartment discrimination complaints, but it is not functioning yet. For the time being send a copy of any complaints about apt. discrimination made to above agencies to Mr. Narmore, Houston Apartment Association, 6630 Harwin. August 5, 1975
