Non-Discrimination Policy

It is the policy of the city of Palmdale to comply with the Fair Housing Act, Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968, as amended by the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988, 42 U.S.C. §§ 3601 et seq., by ensuring that housing is available to all persons without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, disability, familial status (having children under age 18), or sex. This policy means that, among other things, the city of Palmdale and its agents or employees must not discriminate in any aspect of housing, including but not limited to denying persons access to housing, because of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, familial status, or sex. Such agents and employees may not:

a. Make unavailable or deny a dwelling to any person because of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, familial status, or sex;

b. Discriminate against any person in the terms, conditions, or privileges of a dwelling, or in the provision of services or facilities in connection therewith, because of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, familial status, or sex;

c. Make, print, or publish, or cause to be made, printed, or published any notice, statement, or advertisement, with respect to a dwelling that indicates any preference, limitation, or discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, disability, familial status, or sex, or an intention to make any such preference, limitation, or discrimination; or

d. Coerce, intimidate, threaten, or interfere with any person in the exercise or enjoyment of, or on account of his or her having exercised or enjoyed, or on account of his or her having aided or encouraged any other person in the exercise or enjoyment of, any right granted or protected by the Fair Housing Act.

The city of Palmdale also recognizes and complies with the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, which prohibits discrimination in any aspect of housing on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, familial status, sex, marital status, ancestry, sexual orientation, income source, gender, gender identity, gender expression, or genetic information.  Any individual who believes that he or she is the victim of such discrimination is invited to file a complaint with the City of Palmdale or the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing.

Any agent or employee who fails to comply with this non-discrimination policy will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action. Any action taken by an agent or employee that results in the unequal treatment of citizens on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, familial status, sex, marital status, ancestry, sexual orientation, income source, gender, gender identity, gender expression, or genetic information, may constitute a violation of state or federal fair housing laws.

An individual who believes that he or she is the victim of discrimination may file a complaint against the city of Palmdale and/or may contact the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development at 800/347-3739, the U.S. Department of Justice at 800/896-7743, or the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing at 800/884-1684.
