Martin Luther King Jr Celebration

    Jan 18, 2021 12:00 PM --Jan 18, 2021 01:00 PM


Guest Speaker: Bryan Greene, Vice President of Policy Advocacy at NAR

Bryan will talk about the role of Martin Luther King, Jr. in effectively advancing legislation, such as the 1964 Civil Rights Act, 1965 Voting Rights Act and 1968 Fair Housing Act (which was a memorial to him passed seven days after his death). In this respect, he is one of the greatest legislative advocates in the history of this nation, insofar as these federal laws have had a transformative effect on American society: in public accommodations, political rights and social rights. Bryan will discuss how we continue to advance his work on fair housing, realizing his larger Dream for society in bringing the American Dream to everyone and building strong communities that welcome everyone.
