April is Fair Housing Month, and TDHCA encourages Texas communities to make it special. Your city council or county commissioners can pass a resolution in support of Fair Housing, but you can also undertake one or more of these educational – and important – exercises.
For example, you could take advantage of the free posters, brochures and booklets, including “Franklin's Fair Housing Coloring Book," available from HUD. The link provides six graphics for children to color while imparting very simple messages about fairness and equality.
Along the same vein, you could coordinate a poster or essay contest open to school children between kindergarten and 8th grade. Honor contest winners at a local event, such as a city council meeting, or on the community’s website. More »
