The City of Madison Department of Civil Rights has been chosen to receive this year’s Fair Housing Award from the Wisconsin Fair Housing Network for their work to eliminate discrimination for residents within the city of Madison.

Civil Rights Director Norman Davis said, "The Wisconsin Fair Housing Network review committee expressed particular esteem for the extensive protections offered by the City of Madison, as well as our fresh initiatives to break down barriers and address impediments to fair housing. We are grateful to receive this prestigious award and recognition."

The Wisconsin Fair Housing Network (WFHN) is a group of state agencies, local governments, real estate organizations, lenders, individuals, fair housing organizations, and non-profit groups dedicated to fair housing education. WFHN annually celebrates the passage of historical fair housing laws by recognizing individuals and groups that have made substantial contributions in support of fair housing and the elimination of housing discrimination in Wisconsin.

WFHN will be presenting the award to the Department of Civil Rights at their annual Fair Housing Conference taking place July 19-20, 2017 at the Radisson Hotel La Crosse in La Crosse, WI.
