Join NAR in Washington D.C. for an unprecedented Rally to Protect the American Dream
The REALTOR® Party appreciates what each of you do every day to ensure that the American Dream of home ownership, and investment in real estate, remains the core fiber in the fabric that makes America so great.
Every May, NAR holds its Midyear Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo in Washington, D.C. Although thousands of REALTORS® attend the Midyear meetings, this year that's not enough. With the challenges facing real estate and home ownership, this year NAR is having the REALTOR® Rally to Protect the American Dream in Upper Senate Park at the U.S. Capitol. NAR leadership has asked the National Association to FILL THE PARK with REALTORS® on the morning of May 17.
A message from NAR President Moe Veissi
"Our industry is facing a crucial moment. Never before in the history of our great nation have housing and real estate been forced to defend the benefits they provide our country. The very foundation of civilization is no stronger, nor more enduring than the integrity of the homes on which they rest.
"We must have a sustainable, durable housing economy for generations to come. Over the next 18 months Congress will begin reshaping the role of housing in achieving the dream of owning a home. REALTORS® have something to say about this. And this is our opportunity to ensure housing remains the fiber that binds together the fabric of America.
"We are going to defend the American Dream from the doubters who say home ownership and real estate have run their course. That is why we are holding the Rally to Protect the American Dream May 17 in Washington, D.C.
"I am asking you to be there and stand with your fellow REALTORS® from every corner of America -- from Alaska to Illinois to Texas to Guam. We are going to show Congress that no one cares more about revitalizing real estate for future generations than REALTORS® do.
"This is our time. This is our moment. We can't do it without you. Join us."
