Sexual Harassment in Housing Initiative

You should never have to choose between housing and sexual harassment.

The Sexual Harassment in Housing Initiative is an effort to combat sexual harassment in housing led by the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice. The goal of the Initiative is to address sexual harassment by landlords, property managers, maintenance workers, loan officers or other people who have control over housing. If you or someone you know has been sexually harassed by someone connected to housing, contact us to tell us about this experience.

For more information about the work of the Sexual Harassment in Housing Initiative, read press releases, articles, and information about recent cases. To learn more about sexual harassment in housing, explore the information on this site.
