April is Fair Housing Month

April 2023 marks 55 years since the Civil Rights Act was signed into law.

As champions of Fair Housing laws, NAR fights discrimination and promotes equality through several programs and initiatives.

Since 1998, more than 25,000 REALTORS® and association executives have completed the award-winning “At Home with Diversity” (AHWD) program. AHWD is an educational opportunity designed to present a picture of the changing face of the real estate industry to real estate brokers, agents, association executives, and anyone associated with the industry. The class teaches real estate professionals how they can increase their sensitivity and adaptability to future market trends.

Through GAR’s Partners in Education program, five local boards in Georgia are offering the AHWD Certification course this month. Please click on the dates and board names below to register.
