Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter

Answer: I was proud of the statement ARLnow and the rest of the Local News Network (LNN) sites made on Friday, taking a public stance supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.
 
Do people care what I think?
 
I honestly didn’t think so, but it has become clear to me over the last couple of weeks that taking a stance on the BLM movement is important to many of my colleagues, friends, neighbors, and clients. For them, I want to state it in my most public forum: BLACK LIVES MATTER.
 
There are too many people better equipped to write/talk about the topic than me, so I will simply link to couple of them.
 
A few years ago, a close friend recommended Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates and it had a profound impact on my understanding of privilege and systemic racism. The audiobook is narrated by the author, making his words even more powerful.
 
I have called RLAH Real Estate home for my entire real estate career and one of the things I’m most proud of is the incredible diversity across our 250+ agents in the DMV. Our leadership has done an excellent job of encouraging productive conversations about current events and taken strong public stands supporting BLM. I’d like to share this <5 minute video featuring stories from some of my colleagues as it relates to race in real estate.
