“Fair Housing Pledge”

Evening Independent, November 13, 1965

“As a concerned citizen, I am convinced that in our democracy one of the basic constitutional guarantees is for every person to enjoy freedom of choice in securing his own residence…I hereby bear public witness that I will welcome neighbors into my block on an individual basis – without regard to race, religion, or national origin.”
