What's Fair Housing?

All New Yorkers deserve fair and equal access to housing.

The NYC Human Rights Law prohibits discrimination in private and public housing, land, and commercial spaces in New York City. This means that any person sellling, renting, or leasing (including landlords, superintendents, building managers, brokers, and relators) cannot discriminate because of a person's actual or perceived protected status under the law.

If you believe you are the victim of housing discrimination, or if you would like to attend a free workshop on the NYC Human Rights Law, call 311 and ask for the NYC Commission on Human Rights.

Housing discrimination is illegal. Learn how you are protected.
