The organization will host a series of events and activities aimed at fostering inclusivity, education, and professional growth. 

NAREB was founded in 1947 at a time when black real estate professionals were not allowed to be part of the local boards of the National Association of Realtors. Since then, NAREB has worked to combat discrimination in housing by helping to pass legislation that advances civil rights in this country.  The mission of NAREB of Central Kentucky is to solidify a community of black real estate professionals in Central Kentucky who are committed to elevating one another and amplifying our collective voice to better represent the community we serve as we strive to meet the NAREB National goal of Democracy in Housing.

NAREB of Central Kentucky is dedicated to promoting democracy in housing and advancing the interests of minority real estate professionals and consumers. Learn more about NAREB by visiting their website.

The Wealth Summit – Building Black Wealth will be a day of breakout sessions, and an amazing opportunity to hear a keynote speech from Phil Wilkins, head of Community Engagement of Modivcare.
