We are humble and recognize that pursuing our commitment requires ongoing reflection, improvement of our policies, trainings, practices and initiatives. By living by our commitments and taking action against discrimination and calling other businesses and organizations to join the movement, we can contribute to a more open, fair and inclusive society.
Real estate agents are at the forefront of fair housing. Our nation’s painful history with housing includes redlining, racial covenants, and both de jure and de facto segregation. By the same token, we are uniquely positioned to take a lead in breaking down the enduring binds of institutional inequity that continue to inflict damage on our communities, our families, and our colleagues.
