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

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
