Event Details

As an organization, the Asian Real Estate Association of America (AREAA) looks to provide a unified voice for Asian American in the field of real estate. By presenting a cohesive policy plan to lawmakers in Washington D.C., AREAA can effectively speak on behalf of the Asian American population in terms of sustainable homeownership. From May 11th-14th, AREAA National Policy Day will include Hill visits and advocacy training, as well as several evening receptions.

To participate in National Policy Day, and do your part to help advance AREAA’s mission of increasing sustainable homeownership opportunities in the Asian American community, complete the form below. If we work together with local and national policymakers, we can make a difference and clear the path to homeownership for qualified buyers who wish to pursue the American Dream.
