Dear Colleagues,

 
Today, HUD and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) launched a new public service campaign (PSA) to combat sexual harassment in housing. When a landlord sexually victimizes their tenants, it’s not only wrong, it’s against the law. 
 
This 60-second video features three courageous women who share their traumatic experiences as a means to cast a bright light on this crime. 
 
A person’s home should be a safe space, not a place where they fear unwanted sexual advances from someone in power.  Through this campaign, HUD and DOJ are reminding housing providers and their tenants that housing-related sexual harassment will not be tolerated.  HUD will share this video with all Public Housing Agencies across the country and launch a robust social and national media campaign to help victims to report their mistreatment.  We will also providing the PSA to our fair housing partners, legal aid organizations, and others to share with their stakeholders and community members. 
 
I invite you all to take a moment to view this important service announcement and to share it with your partners, stakeholders, and community groups. 
 
Thank you for all you do to promote our Department’s mission. 
 
 
Sincerely,
Secretary Carson
