St Louis Association Responds to Ferguson Violence and Unrest with Innovative Fair Housing Campaign

March 2015

As the nation was riveted by the violence that followed the Ferguson shooting last summer, relief for the riot-torn suburb of St Louis came from the local REALTOR organization.  The 6,600-member St. Louis Association of REALTORS® first helped with deliveries of basic supplies to the citizens of Ferguson.  Then, they sought to replace fear with information by using a $5,000 Diversity Grant from NAR to launch a widespread educational campaign, beginning a dialogue about the need for fair housing practices.
