|Actions to Make Your Business Anti-Racist|
What can you do to affect change and help build more inclusive communities where everyone lives free of discrimination? You can start by engaging in an open, honest conversation about racial equality at your brokerage, NAR President Vince Malta says in Part II of his latest “Pivot in Place” video, “Rebuilding for Racial Equality.” Not only should you make a commitment to diversity and fair housing, but you also can take other steps—such as partnering with local black-owned businesses—to intentionally promote a message of antihate in your community.
Learn about overriding hidden bias through a fascinating new training video from NAR. And don’t forget to look back at Part I of Malta’s video, released last week, in which he says this moment in our nation’s history is a “new beginning” and an opportunity for REALTORS® to reaffirm the pledge that the real estate business is “open for all.”
In an effort to support positive change, NAR has launched the Community Rebuilding Grant, which provides emergency funding to REALTOR® associations that want to help clean up and repair property damaged that accompanied otherwise peaceful protests. And following through on its principle that homeownership is one of the key paths toward equality, NAR has relaunched its Housing Opportunity Toolkit, which provides guidance and resources to help REALTORS® address affordability challenges in their community.
