3/4-10/18: Listen then leverage 20th National Consumer Protection Week w/ #RE2020 Podcasts?
#RE2020 plans to host a number of listening sessions with consumers and professionals during 20th annual National Consumer Protection Week #NCPW and turn them into podcasts. We'd like to explore multiple themes and invite your ideas on Twitter, in the thread below, or as separate posts on Loomio.
Here's a starter list plus suggested hashtags so YOUR social media posts connect with others, and amplify our individual and collective goals. If you'd like to be interview on any of these topics and want to nomination someone else, please let us know:
FIRST THINGS FIRST: CONSUMER RIGHTS
Since the Trump administration has been dismantling consumer protections, we're using #NCPW to talk about the need for a Real Estate Consumer Bill of Rights. Since 1999, there have been a number of efforts to draft one:
That effort peaked in 2001 when a petition co-signed by a number of leading real estate consumer advocates was submitted to Congress:
During the past decade, there's been little movement on that proposal, but the daily experience of millions of homebuyers who are being tracked by real estate apps underlines the need to address the subject during National Consumer Protection Week.
Who should #RECALL invite to provide a historical perspective on #REBillOfRights, and who should we invite to talk about the need for a Homebuyer / Homeowner Bill of Digital Rights, particularly as real estate companies morph into data companies?
