In the past, companies were limited in what they could use the fair housing logo for.
It was only available to a few hundred people per day.
But the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 mandated that all businesses and government agencies be allowed to use it.
“We wanted to get this out there so everyone could see the full impact of this, because it’s so important,” said the Fairness Project, which created the logo.
Since then, businesses have used the logo to identify themselves and advertise their wares.
But how do you tell your employees to use this logo?
It’s not as simple as changing the logo, which can be tricky.
The Fair Housing Commission has several guidelines on how businesses should use the logo for a variety of reasons.
First, it can be confusing to employees when they first learn that they’re working with the Fair Landmark logo, as many companies have found out when they get it mixed up with their name.
That can cause employees to question why the logo is there and not a different logo, and it can confuse some shoppers.
“If you see the Fair Lifemark logo next to the Fair Homemark logo on a billboard, it’s confusing to know that the logo actually stands for something,” said Laura Williams, the Fair Fair Housing Program Manager for the Fair Credit Union.
The second reason businesses can use the emblem is because it provides a clear connection to the name.
For example, the name of the Fairland Fair Housing Project is Fairland, and the Fair Haven Fair Housing project is Fair Haven.
This can help distinguish the project from the Fair Hills Fair Housing Partnership, which is a separate entity.
Fair Housing has also used the Fair Homes logo to communicate the importance of a fair housing project.
“The Fair Housing Alliance has a long history of using the Fair Hope logo, especially during the Fair Chance Fair,” Williams said.
“It’s important that Fair Housing is recognized and supported for the tremendous contributions they’ve made to Fairness.”
The third reason businesses use the icon is because of its association with a historic landmark.
When it comes to using the logo during an historic event, the commission encourages businesses to create an appropriate, informative banner.
“In a historic event where you can’t afford a new building or you’re not sure what to do, you can use this emblem to indicate the Fair Houses of America and Fair Housing Association’s historic significance,” said Williams.
The final reason businesses are allowed to put up a logo with a Fair Housing symbol is that it is a part of a historical record.
This means that the Fair Lands of America logo has been used in a variety in its history.
“That’s really important because it gives the Fair People the history that they need,” Williams explained.
The logo will also be used by the Fair Housetop Fair Housing Initiative and Fair Hope Fair Housing Trust.
“They are both organizations dedicated to promoting Fair Housing and Fair Chance,” Williams added.
