Farias also made the point that HUD is focused on holding on to its commitment to protecting the right for people to enjoy their homes without having to deal with harassment or unwanted sexual advances. This is the theme for this year’s Fair Housing Month is “Call HUD: Because Sexual Harassment in Housing is Illegal.” This theme was chosen not only as a call for awareness but as a call to action to call HUD, particularly for those who have experienced discrimination and survivors of sexual harassment.
