The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development created 12 videos in American Sign Language (ASL) with English captioning. These videos provide critical legal and practical information in a format accessible to persons who are Deaf and/or Hard of Hearing. These videos feature Deaf and/or Hard of Hearing Actors who provide important information related to fair housing and fair lending rights under the federal Fair Housing Act. Due to their short length, these videos do not provide complete information about rights and responsibilities under fair housing laws. If you believe you may have experienced discrimination, please contact one of the organizations identified at the end of this video. HUD would like to thank the Disability Independence Group and the National Fair Housing Alliance for the production of these videos. View the 12 videos here.
