ACLU of Mississippi will support legislation to ensure that every Mississippian is able to obtain housing free from discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity and HIV/AIDS status.

Adequate housing is more than just having a roof over one’s head. Indeed, housing discrimination contributes to housing segregation and concentrated poverty leading to greater inequalities in access to employment opportunities, health care, and education.
