About 13,000 REALTORS® are expected to be at the Washington Monument on Thursday, May 17, for the Rally to Protect the American Dream. If you can’t be one of them, you can participate virtually—and we hope you do. Participating in the virtual rally is easy and should be fun, too. But more than that, it’s important for advancing REALTORS®’ federal legislative and regulatory agenda in the months ahead. Because you can contact your members of Congress from the virtual rally site. Letting them know you care about home ownership is a big part of what the Rally is all about.
Here’s how the virtual rally works. On Wednesday, May 16, go to www.RealtorRally.org, and add your name to a map of the United States. You’re basically checking in to the virtual rally and letting your colleagues and friends know you’re participating with the 13,000 REALTORS® who will be at the Washington Monument.
On the site you can do a lot of things, including tweeting and adding posts to Facebook. And you can let your senators and your congressperson know that you’re as much a part of the Rally as those who are in Washington in person.
On the day of the Rally, there will be lots to do—videos, pictures, and more.
On the day after the Rally, there will be a fun FanCam image posted. If you’re not familiar with what that is, it’s a wide-angle image that essentially captures every person at a big event like the Super Bowl. Even if there’s 100,000 people at the event, the image captures each one, so on RealtorRally.org you can click on each person to get a snapshot of each one. It’s quite a momento from the event.
We hope to see you at the Rally—in -person if possible but virtually if not. Attending virtually is a great way to show you share your colleagues’ effort to protect home ownership as central to our country’s priorities.
