In this blog post, we'll explore three compelling reasons why you should participate in the NAREB Leadership at the Congressional Black Caucus events.
Before we delve into the reasons to attend these remarkable events, let's take a moment to appreciate the rich history of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC). Established in 1971, the CBC has played a pivotal role in advocating for the rights and opportunities of African Americans and marginalized communities. Its mission is to ensure that all Americans have the opportunity to achieve the American Dream, including access to affordable housing.
One of the key aspects of this mission has been the CBC's commitment to fair housing. The CBC has been at the forefront of advocating for fair housing policies that promote equality and eradicate discrimination in housing markets. Their dedication to this cause has had a lasting impact on housing opportunities for Black Americans.
The NAREB Leadership event at the Congressional Black Caucus, held in Washington on Friday, September 22, 2023, was a monumental gathering of minds and visionaries in the real estate and housing industry.
The conference, titled "State of Emergency: The Inventory Shortage in America & Why we have to Buy the Block," brought together experts who are deeply passionate about addressing critical issues related to housing and community development.
Prominent panelists, including R. Donahue Pebbles of Legacy Real Estate Development, Malik Yoba of Yoba Development, and Chris Senegal of Buy the Block Project, shared their invaluable insights on the challenges of housing inventory shortages and the importance of community-driven solutions. The guest speaker and moderator for the event was none other than Van Jones, a renowned advocate for social and economic justice.
