A Statement from AAREP on Recent Events

As an organization formed to promote the economic success of African Americans in the real estate industry, most AAREP members are far too familiar with racial injustice. The recent senseless murders and acts of violence against black people are a symptom of the cancer of systematic and institutionalized racism supported by pervasive white supremacist ideals engrained in America.

AAREP stands with the families and justice seekers across this country, advocating not only for equal treatment under the law, but for a change in legislation and policies aimed at preventing inhumane brutality against people of color.

As long as racism and prejudice are fabrics of our society, generation changing professional and economic success will be unattainable for the majority of African Americans.

We take a collective breath for George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and countless others mercilessly robbed of life.

We take a collective breath for people of color across this country.

We take a collective breath for anyone who has ever cried “I Can’t Breathe”.
