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.
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.
The collection is open for research use.
