The Fair Housing Five

A new book for children


This week marks the start of Fair Housing Five Month, a time to celebrate fair housing youth education with GNOFHAC’s original children’s book, The Fair Housing Five and the Haunted House.  The book is about a group of diverse kids that discover a landlord in their neighborhood is discriminating and work together to take action to ensure all are welcome in their community.  It is illustrated in vibrant full-color by local artist Sharika Mahdi-Neville.

The book introduces conversations about discrimination, the civil rights movement, diversity, fairness, and opportunity at a young age.  It is also designed to empower young people to fight injustice in their own communities!

How can you get involved?

GNOFHAC wants more young people in the greater New Orleans area to read The Fair Housing Five and get excited about ending discrimination, and you can help make it happen! YOU and your business/organization can donate a copy of The Fair Housing Five to a school of your choice, and GNOFHAC will deliver it!

To donate a book (or a few!) to a school in your community or find out more about the accompanying workshops, contact Education Coordinator Sophie Rosen here.
