DCAR statement: Harassment, discrimination & NAR transparency

You have likely seen or heard about the recent New York Times article detailing a culture of sexual harassment and lack of transparency at the National Association of REALTORS®. The president of the association, Kenny Parcell, has resigned his position and President-Elect Tracy Kasper has been elevated to president, effective immediately. Here is her statement, for reference.

With respect to The D.C. Association of Realtors (DCAR), you have our commitment, in the weeks ahead, to examine all aspects of our association and enact any policies needed to ensure you, your fellow association members and staff operate in a safe environment. Each of you, and our staff, have the right to work in an atmosphere free of fear. Harassment and discrimination are not and will never be tolerated at DCAR.

Prior to this issue coming to light, DCAR had called upon NAR to commit to more transparency in all its capacities. We will remain vigilant in holding NAR accountable to follow through on this request.

Thank you for your continued support as we strive to make your association one of which you can be proud.
