Video recaps day Illinois REALTORS® dedicated Fair Housing monument


REALTORS® unable to attend the dedication of the Illinois REALTORS® Fair Housing monument on April 9 in Springfield can get a feel for the historic nature of event with this video.

Five association members who persevered as their communities strove to eliminate housing discrimination — Courtney Jones, Loretta Alonzo-Deubel, Ezekiel Morris, Vicky Silvano and Frank Williams — helped commemorate the event. President Matt Difanis apologized for any past roles members played in promoting inequality, Springfield Mayor James Langfelder read a proclamation and HUD administrator Joseph Galvan encouraged members to keep fighting discrimination on behalf of their clients.

Mark your calendars for Aug. 26, when Springfield dedicates Bicentennial Plaza — the site where the historic monument is located.
