Sarah E! sits down with Thomas Anderson, the Chairman of the Texas Commission on Human Rights to discuss what your rights are and what to do if you think you are experiencing housing discrimination. Housing discrimination may be unintentional, but it is always against the law. The Federal Fair Housing Act along with the Texas Fair Housing Act protects your right to rent an apartment, buy a home, obtain a mortgage, or purchase homeowners insurance free from discrimination. Fair Housing means you may freely choose a place to live without regard to your race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability or familial status.
