Welcome

In April of 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee, the demise of one of the greatest leaders of our time was the catalyst for the launching of historically sweeping legislation.

One of the legacies of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (Fair Housing Act), which prohibits housing discrimination.

In tribute to this legacy, a local group of dedicated individuals decided to form a network of volunteers to continue the legacy of Dr. King to ensure housing equality. Thus was born the Fair Housing Alliance of Greater Memphis. On behalf of each member and partner, we appreciate your visit to our website and invite you to be a part of our continued growth. Special thanks is also given to Representative Larry Miller and TennCo Express Airport Shuttle whose support of this worthwhile organization has provided for the opportunity of this website which will allow the Alliance to reach people and organizations from all walks of life.

The Fair Housing Alliance of Greater Memphis was founded almost a decade ago and is now an established 501(C)3 organization and continues its goal of providing education and outreach to the public as well as housing providers (including community development organizations, mortgage companies, financial institutions and real estate professionals).

Every year in April, the FHAGM has a Fair Housing Conference and Workshops to celebrate and acknowledge Dr. King’s legacy. There is also a Fall Mini Conference/Workshop which allows us to continue to address the needs of the community. As you are well aware, there is a housing crisis and FHAGM is dedicated in providing assistance, alternatives and solutions to our community and we sincerely appreciate your input.

It is the short and long term goal of this organization to provide education and outreach. The FHAGM is an effective collaboration of businesses and individuals not initially aware of the other’s existence. Since it’s inception, the main goal is service through dissemination of information. The FHAGM has been able to cross educate through our varied professions by familiarity and coexistence as well as shared professional resources between ourselves, but mainly to and for the public which we serve.

Knowledge is power and the FHAGM works to improve the masses through outreach and education to keep the DREAM alive.
