As Arizona’s Attorney General, it is my responsibility to enforce Arizona’s Fair Housing Act as well as to educate our community about the importance of fair housing and the requirements of our civil rights laws.
Since 1968 we have come a long way toward achieving equal rights for all Arizonans, but there is still a great deal to be done.
Some housing violations take place because people are unaware of fair housing laws. Others are deliberate acts of discrimination. I encourage all Arizonans to learn more about their fair housing rights and responsibilities.
The Civil Rights Division of the Attorney General’s Office is always available to provide training to businesses and professional associations that are working to comply with the law. Information on events and training provided by the Division throughout the year can be found on the Attorney General’s Office website, www.azag.gov.
If you would like more information or feel you have been a victim of housing discrimination, the Attorney General’s Office is here to help. Please call us at 602.542.5263 or email us at CivilRightsInfo@azag.gov.
The Arizona Attorney General’s Office is working toward the day when fair housing in our state is no longer a goal but a reality.
