Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (Fair Housing Act) which prohibits housing discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. [/vc_column_text][mk_padding_divider][mk_ornamental_title font_family=”none” font_size=”28″ ornament_style=”norman-double”]Panelists[/mk_ornamental_title][mk_padding_divider][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][mk_circle_image src=”https://www.civilandhumanrights.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/t.-lee-headshot.jpg” image_diameter=”150″][mk_padding_divider][mk_circle_image src=”https://www.civilandhumanrights.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/w.-brooks-headshot.jpg” image_diameter=”150″][mk_padding_divider size=”70″][mk_circle_image src=”https://www.civilandhumanrights.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/buell-c-photo.jpg” image_diameter=”150″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][mk_fancy_title font_family=”none”]Terri M.
