Sneak Preview with Mary Duff, WRA Chair
Building diversity, equity and inclusion in Wisconsin housing starts with all of us today. The Wisconsin REALTORS® Association invites you to a diversity discussion on April 29 featuring top keynote speaker and Madison-based attorney Brian Anderson for a dynamic, engaging and thought-provoking presentation into some of the causes behind Wisconsin’s housing segregation. Anderson will discuss Wisconsin laws and practices that have contributed to segregation in our neighborhoods and discrimination in our housing.
These discussions affect you, your neighbors and your community – and building awareness builds positive change. You’ll leave with a new understanding of the roots of segregation in our state and a new awareness of these critical issues.
