Book and music publisher Hillocrian Creative LLC is pleased to announce the launch of the Hillocrian Store, which will feature apparel, accessories, housewares, office gifts and other unique products mainly inspired by the company’s books and music.
The inaugural product line, “Fair Housing Matters,” draws inspiration from Fair Housing Helper for Apartment Professionals by Ron Leshnower. Featuring a colorful logo designed by the author and available on products ranging from T-shirts and iPhone cases to golf balls and baby bibs, Fair Housing Matters is a way to show support for housing equality.
“The abolishment of slavery following the Civil War opened the door to civil rights legislation aimed at protecting people against housing discrimination. These efforts culminated in the passage of the Fair Housing Act in April 1968,” explains Leshnower. “Today, this law protects people based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, and familial status, while several state and local governments expand coverage with additional protected classes such as source of income and sexual orientation. April has since become known as Fair Housing Month, a time to appreciate the right to equal treatment under law when looking for and living in a home. Launched in April to coincide with the 49th anniversary of the landmark law, the Fair Housing Matters line of products offers a meaningful way to display pride in this hard-fought American civil right.”
