It's illegal to discriminate against people in housing based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, disability, or family status according to both state and federal law. In Wisconsin it is also illegal to discriminate based on ancestry, marital status, age, sexual orientation, or lawful source of income for housing. Some local fair housing laws include additional areas of discrimination.
