In celebration of April being Fair Housing Month, the Realtors® Association of the Palm Beaches, in partnership with the Palm Beach County Office of Equal Opportunity and the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County, are proud to announce the winners of our annual Fair Housing contest.
The year’s theme was “Fair Housing: Making Dreams Come True,” and the goal was to raise public awareness of the enactment of the federal Fair Housing Act, Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, familial status, disability, national origin, and gender, and to encourage fair housing opportunities for all citizens. In addition, Palm Beach County’s Fair Housing Ordinance prohibits discrimination based upon sexual orientation, age, marital status, and gender identity or expression.
We would like to thank all of the students who took the time to participate — you helped make a difference in your community! Also, special thanks to the Realtors® who came to support our Winners’ Reception on Wednesday, April 19th. Elementary School Poster Winners
