State and local REALTOR® Associations around the country are taking advantage of REALTOR® Party tools and resources to step up their community outreach and advocacy efforts. Their success stories expand beyond their states and cities because they inspire and set precedents. Take a look at the examples here for around the country.
Do You Have an Advocacy or REALTOR Party Success Story to Share?
In a year fraught with racial tension across the United States, the Houston Association of REALTORS® has made addressing issues of equality and Fair Housing a top priority. Despite the added challenges presented by a global pandemic and markedly severe weather, a hard-working task force convened by HAR Chairman John Nugent is making sure that the association’s 42,000 members have meaningful opportunities for learning, discussion, and collaboration to help them serve their communities responsibly and pro-actively.
Columbus REALTORS® has also been seeking solutions to how we can become a more open and inclusive Association. In an effort to create that safe space, its Diversity & Inclusion Committee launched a Book Club for members to have open, honest (and sometimes tough) conversations about race, racism, diversity, and inclusion.
The Houston Association of REALTORS® responded to heightened racial tensions felt across the country this summer by convening a Diversity & Inclusion Task Force, which is producing compelling programming to raise awareness among its membership. The efforts are supported in part by the REALTOR® Party.
