Meet the new leader in the fight against housing discrimination

How did we miss this?

Over a year ago, the Feds celebrated the 39th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act by creating Franklin the Fair Housing Fox. The mascot is meant to make Fair Housing everyone’s responsibility, including your kids!

Franklin even has a foxy email address and online discrimination quiz for kids; a sample:

My family saw an ad that said "Only white people need apply." Is this housing discrimination?

Franklin joins a proud legacy of anthropomorphic awareness cartoons, including Smokey Bear and McGruff the Crime Dog, but lacks that certain je ne sais quoi. Even so, we wish him luck.
