Action Alert

Sign on to Protect Fair Housing Rule

For more than 45 years, “disparate impact” has been a crucial legal tool to fight discrimination and ensure equal housing opportunity. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) proposed a rule change that would create insurmountable barriers to proving discrimination. These changes would allow financial institutions, insurance companies, and housing providers to engage in covert discriminatory practices, effectively gutting the disparate impact doctrine and putting millions of people at risk of housing discrimination.
