The responsibility for ending housing discrimination rests with all of us, not just direct victims.
If you know of someone engaging in discriminatory housing practices, please let us know. We can do our own investigation, but you need to do your part by reporting it. Otherwise, people will continue to be harmed, and you don’t want that on your conscience.
The information you give us is confidential and it can be provided anonymously if you prefer. If you have specific information about a discriminatory housing situation, please let us know and we’ll take it from there. Fill out the form below.

Housing discrimination can be subtle. It can occur in different ways and at many different stages of a housing transaction. For information on fair housing laws, who is protected, and what conduct is prohibited, click here.
About the Fair Housing Justice Center
The Fair Housing Justice Center assists individuals and organizations with allegations of illegal housing discrimination. Our intake personnel can help sort out the facts, interview witnesses, review documents, and counsel individuals on their rights and options under all of the fair housing laws.
In some instances, the FHJC may be able to gather additional information by conducting a fair housing testing investigation. Sometimes, testing evidence enables a victim of discrimination to meet his/her burden of proving that unlawful discrimination occurred.
The FHJC can also assist with referral to government enforcement agencies and to cooperating attorneys on a case-by-case basis. Note: the FHJC does not itself provide legal representation for complainants.
All of these services are provided by the FHJC free of charge and without regard to household income. Learn more about our mission and history here.
