Two and a half years after President Lincoln issued his Emancipation Proclamation, on June 19, 1865, slaves in Galveston, Texas were notified that they were free.
We recognize Juneteenth Day as the end of a horrible chapter in our nation's history, and applaud those in our past and present who engage in peaceful demonstrations for equality, fairness, and justice in our society.
That same spirit of fairness lead a group of real estate agents in Milwaukee to establish the Milwaukee Real Estate Board in 1892, a precursor to the National Association of REALTORS, which would come along in 1908.
Both organizations were founded on a code of ethics demanding fairness, integrity, and honor. As champions of fair housing, equality and inclusion are among our most cherished values.
