Thank you to those who joined us on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, at 10:00 am on Zoom for "Making Room for Conversations" with 2022 NCJAR President William "Bill" Flagg. 

Alexia Smokler, NAR's Senior Policy Representative for Fair Housing, and Leslie J. Frazier, MPA, Virginia Realtors®, SVP of Community and Industry Relations, discussed fair housing inequities and how to talk about it with confidence. 

Alexia addressed some of the past and present Fair Housing complexities and the challenges you may face right here in New Jersey. She defined ways to Be The Change with information and education.  Leslie also talked about how to "Make Room for Conversation" by defining our differences' and increasing the understanding of the communities you serve.
