The Fair Housing Act of 1968 protects against discrimination in housing due to race, color, age (40 or over), sex, religion, national origin, ancestry, familial status (families with children under 18), pregnancy, disability, relationship to someone with a disability, or because you use, handle or train a support animal for a disability.  Pennsylvania Law protects from discrimination in five areas:
   *Employment – getting a job or working at one.
   *Education – in school, whether it be a public or private school, college, trade school or university.
   *Public accommodations – access to public places and services.
   *Housing – in renting, buying, selling or getting a loan for a home.
   *Commercial property – access to or the purchase, sale or lease of commercial property.

Call toll free 855-866-5718, to file a complaint.  A complaint must be filed within 180 days of the discriminatory act.
