Course Correction: The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Ongoing Fair Hous

Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library
3310 Connecticut Avenue NW
Washington, D.C. 20008

Using the phenomenal artifacts from NAR’s rich archive, this presentation is targeted to real estate professionals and charts the National Association of REALTORS® fair housing evolution.

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) is America’s largest trade association, representing 1.5 million plus members, including NAR’s institutes, societies, and councils involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

Presented by Colette Massengale, a native Washingtonian and an attorney and senior policy representative for fair housing policy with the National Association of REALTORS®. Prior to joining the Legal Affairs Department at Maryland REALTORS®, Colette worked as a Law Clerk for the Honorable Rhonda Reid Winston in Washington, DC. At Maryland REALTORS®, Colette enjoys helping clients minimize risks by developing best practices that can be readily implemented, preparing contracts and other legal documents that are easy to understand, and teaching courses such as Ethics, Agency, Contracts, and Fair Housing.

This program is presented in association with Undesign the Redline, an exhibit created by Designing the We that explores the history of explicit race-based exclusion, specifically in upper Northwest DC. The exhibit helps us understand why inequities in housing and wealth persist, and encourages us to ask how we can “undesign” these wrongs. Suitable for middle-school aged children and older. Undesign the Redline is on display from April 11-July 11, 2024 at the Cleveland Park Neighborhood Library, 3310 Connecticut Avenue, NW.
