Description
The California Fair Housing initiative, or Proposition 14, was the focal point of racial discrimination and the civil rights movement in California. The collection includes program files of Jeannette Mucha who was in charge of public relations for the Peninsula Interfaith Committe on Fair Housing, an organization created to promote fair housing on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
Background
The Peninsula Interfaith Committee on Fair Housing began in 1963 in response to an initiative campaign funded by the California Real Estate Association, to repeal the 1963 Rumford Fair Housing Act prohibiting discrimination in private housing based on race, religion, color, national origin or ancestry. The Committee was formed to raise awareness and promote freedom of opportunity in housing on the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
