High Plains Fair Housing Center is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that works to eliminate housing discrimination and to ensure equal housing opportunities for all. The Center assists people who believe they have experienced discrimination while attempting to rent or purchase housing, provides community education to promote fair housing, and conducts preliminary investigations of potential housing discrimination.


On April 11, 1968, seven days after the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., President Lyndon Johnson signed into law Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, commonly known as the Fair Housing Act.

High Plains Fair Housing Center has partnered with THe Human Family, the Greater Grand Forks Apartment Association and the North Dakota Human Rights Coalition to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act.

Screenings of the short films “Seven Days”, “Matter of Place” and portions of “Brick By Brick” will be followed by a panel discussion that will highlight the importance of fair housing and its impact in North Dakota.
