Back in February NAR President Moe Veissi announced the Rally to Protect the American Dream to be held during the NAR Midyear Legislative Meetings in Washington in May. The response and support have been overwhelming. Members sprang into action immediately and as a result, REALTORS® from across America have heeded the call to be in Washington on May 17.
In fact, it has turned out to be so successful that we have outgrown our original rally location at the Upper Senate Park!
We have made a “monumental” change and are now holding the rally at the Washington Monument. Our REALTOR® sea of blue will gather at the foot of our finest tribute to America’s First Father, on the National Mall, home to so many historic marches and rallies. To our back will be the Lincoln Memorial and the Reflecting Pool, to our side the White House and Treasury Building, and ahead of us the U.S. Capitol. Our visibility will be greater and impossible to ignore.
Oklahoma REALTORS® will be gathering at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel to shuttle to Capitol Hill. Look for the group holding “We Put the Home in Oklahoma!” signs! Follow @OKGAD on Twitter for the most up-to-the-minute updates on the event. Contact Charla Slablotsky, OAR Senior Vice President of Government Affairs, with any questions.
Stay tuned for information about needed adjustments to bus logistics. NAR will be in touch with all of you planning to take public transportation to the rally with an updated list of Metro stops. If you are attending the Midyear meetings, you will be bused to the proper location or given directions for taking Metro to the National Mall.
Watch the Mondays with Moe podcast about the rally location change. An email notification will be sent to all rally registrants tomorrow along with some new fun tools to help REALTORS® get excited about the rally. We appreciate your support as we continue to build the buzz. It is working because every day we get more and more REALTORS® signing up to be here!
