01/30/2019: Mortgage Team Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968

The Carter Bank Mortgage loan team recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, commonly known as the Fair Housing Act, at our Southwest Virginia office.

As envisioned, the Fair Housing Act is intented to bring together both justice and equity. In signing the bill, President Johnson proclaimed, “At long last, fair housing for all is now a part of the American way of life. We have come some of the way—not near all of it.”

Fair Housing eliminates discrimination and helps to strengthen families, communities, businesses and our overall economy. The goal is for every community to be a place of opportunity where people can live in diverse, inclusive and accessible neighborhoods with quality schools, healthy foods, meaningful jobs, health care, green spaces, quality credit and the other opportunities that frame and affect our lives.
