#OpenTheDoor

"It doesn't matter how long my hair is or what colour my skin is or whether I'm a woman or a man." - John Lennon

Millions of people, due to their religion, gender, sexuality, caste, ethnicity, or ability are denied rental housing each year. This leads to a violation of fundamental rights, ghettoized urban landscapes, and increasing intolerance. This is a shame because true diversity can be a source of incredible beauty and vitality and is necessary to healthy communities. 
While this prejudice is legally prohibited, the problem continues to persist.
This can only change at scale if individual homeowners (landlords) choose to embrace diversity and open their doors to potential tenants with identities that might be different from their own. Inclusion does begin at home!
