WHAT:  
The time for action on Black Wealth is now! NAREB is working with the Church Of God In Christ, the African American Mayors Association, the National Bar Association, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, and Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity to present the Mount Vernon stop on the Building Black Wealth Tour.  In more than 100 cities, NAREB will organize classes, workshops, and one-on-one counseling with lawyers, agents/brokers, and lenders to help residents learn to build wealth. The HUD-approved NID Housing Counseling Agency will provide consumers with free credit reports and counseling. The goal of the event is to give Black residents the information they need to build wealth and get answers to questions like how to buy a home. Why is this needed?  The Black-White wealth gap is so expansive that the 400 wealthiest Americans control the same amount of wealth as all 48 million Blacks living in the U.S. There are 2 million mortgage-ready Black Americans who don’t yet own houses.  NAREB explains why they should. At the Mt. Vernon event, sessions will include:

  • Clergy and Community Leaders Roundtable
  • Seller’s Class – I Have Equity…Now What Presenters/Moderator: Realtist Members
  • What to do with Big Mama’s House?
  • Show me the Money! Downpayment Assistance and Resources
  • Careers in Real Estate
  • Investing in Real Estate
  • The Value of a Realtist as Your Real Estate Professional

WHERE:  MT. Vernon High School. 100 California Rd, Mt Vernon, NY 10552

WHEN: 10 AM3 PM
