Made possible by a grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, this public service announcement (PSA) is meant to help Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders understand their fair housing rights. The video emphasizes that the Fair Housing Act prohibits discrimination in housing based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), familial status, and disability. This PSA is in English. Closed captioning is available in English. Other languages are available at the National Fair Housing PSA Vimeo page.

If you feel you have been discriminated against, call RCDS for help. We can help you fill out a complaint or connect you to the proper agency to help with your concerns. The following housing resources are also available by clicking on the links.
