The primary mission of NAGLREP is to advocate on behalf of the rights of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community. Specifically, NAGLREP initiates action and encourages existing efforts among the civil rights community, local and state REALTOR® associations, and the National Association of REALTORS® to support fair housing for the LGBT community.

Equally important to this mission is the organization’s work with legislators at the local, state and federal levels to enact legislation that would eliminate discrimination and provide fair and equal rights to the LGBT community.
