HUD and the National Fair Housing Alliance have launched a PSA campaign to call attention to housing discrimination.

“Where we live determines so much in life, including access to good education, health care and job opportunities,” Smith said. “It is vital that people around the country be aware of their rights under the Fair Housing Act.”

The campaign includes print ads in English, Spanish, and Chinese, and radio PSAs in English and Spanish. The PSAs are available at HUD.gov/fairhousing and www.nationalfairhousing.org.

Anyone who believes he or she has been a victim of housing discrimination should contact HUD at 1-800-669-9777 (voice), (800) 927-9275(TTY) or visit www.HUD.gov/fairhousing.
