GayRealEstate.com Castigates National Association of REALTORS For Inviting President Trump to Speak at Event
PALM SPRINGS, Calif., May 20, 2019 (Newswire.com) - GayRealEstate.com, a service that connects buyers and sellers with compatible agents, is condemning the National Association of REALTORS’ (NAR) decision for having President Trump speak at their national convention on March 17. The GayRealEstate.com team opposes their decision to invite President Trump because of his inadequate ability to behave within the association’s own strict code of ethics and his overt dismantling of LGBTQ rights and initiatives.
The NAR is America's largest trade association, representing 1.3 million members, including NAR's institutes, societies and councils, involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries, according to their website.
GayRealEstate.com takes issue with the association’s invitation because of the Trump Administration’s anti-LGBTQ actions, including banning transgender members from serving in the military, not reinstating housing protection guidelines that would prevent LGBTQ Americans from experiencing discrimination while attaining a home, and announcing plans to veto the recently passed Equality Act, approved by a bi-partisan coalition in Congress. The act would update U.S. law to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.
NAR manages the REALTORS Political Action Committee (RPAC) which promotes the election of pro-REALTOR candidates across the United States, according to their website. GayRealEstate.com questions whether these contributions represent the best interests of each of their 1.3 million members.
“Mr. Trump is a licensed real estate broker – he is “to eliminate practices which may damage the public or which might discredit or bring dishonor to the real estate profession,” according to just the very first paragraphs of the NAR Code of Ethics and Standards. Again, leadership at NAR turning a blind eye and placing him on a pedestal,” said Jeff Hammerberg, Founding CEO at GayRealEstate.com.
