One of the fair housing bills we’ve been working on, HB 804 by Representative Brossett, will be heard Monday, March 31, at 9:30am by the the House Commerce Committee at the State Capitol.
There’s still time to make a difference!

Believe it or not, right now it is legal to deny LGBT people the opportunity to rent, buy, or sell housing because of their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, or marital status. This bill would make that illegal and give LGBT people a fair shake at a stable and affordable place to live.
We are proud to work with Rep. Brossett and the Greater New Orleans Fair Housing Action Center to bring a bill before the Louisiana legislature that addresses the disparate treatment of LGBT people in the housing market. We need your help to make this bill a part of Louisiana law.
I can’t stress how necessary it is that these committee members hear from you about how important this bill is to Louisiana residents. Please, call or email each of them.
