The West Georgia Board of Realtors Organization is honoring the 50th Anniversary of the 1968 Fair Housing Act with a community celebration with music, local performers, and speakers.
The event will take place on April 11, 2018, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the O’Neal Plaza Downtown Douglasville. The plaza is located at 6695 Church Street, next to the City Hall of Douglasville. The event will feature keynote speaker, Douglas County District 1 Commissioner, Henry Mitchell, III. Housing information and resources will be available.
As you may know, the 1968 Fair Housing Act was signed by President Lyndon B. Johnson on April 11, 1968. The Civil Rights Act prohibited discrimination; concerning the sale, rental, and financing of housing based on race, religion, national origin and sex. Fifty years later, the West Georgia Board of Realtors would like to recognize how far fair housing has come and acknowledge the anniversary with a celebration of inclusivity and progress.
The organization is looking to showcase the skills and talents of the community; therefore, if you would like to participate in the celebration, please contact Jen Garrett for more information at (404) 936-6307 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
