NAR Thanks Senator Tim Kaine for Reintroducing “The Fair and Equal Housing Act of 2024"

Issue Date: July 08, 2024

NAR submitted a letter to Senator Tim Kaine thanking him for reintroducing “The Fair and Equal Housing Act of 2024,” which will provide clear and consistent non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ+ people in housing by adding “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” as protected characteristics under the Fair Housing Act. 

REALTORS® celebrated the Supreme Court’s decision in Bostock v. Clayton County, in which it held that the prohibition on discrimination “because of sex” under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 included discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. NAR also applauded HUD’s quick action to implement the January 20, 2021 Executive Order on Preventing and Combating Discrimination on the Basis of Gender Identity or Sexual Orientation.

NAR continues to work to make the American dream available and accessible to all Americans and stands ready to work with Congress to support and promote the Fair and Equal Housing Act of 2024.
