Attorney General Jeff Landry Recognizes Fair Housing Month

BATON ROUGE, LA – In recognition of the anniversary of the Fair Housing Act and in participation of National Fair Housing Month, Attorney General Jeff Landry is educating Louisiana citizens about their rights and responsibilities under the law.

“Fair housing should never be denied to any person because of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, or handicap,” said Attorney General Jeff Landry. “As Louisiana’s Attorney General, I am committed to ensuring the Louisiana Department of Justice serves all of our State’s people.”

“My Office will enforce the Louisiana Equal Housing Opportunity Act. We will work hard in the investigation, conciliation, and judicial enforcement of fair housing claims,” said Attorney General Jeff Landry. “And we will educate the State’s citizens about their rights regarding the sale or rental of housing.”
