Come hear from renowned social and economic justice advocate, Stella Adams, about increasing investment in low-income and minority communities. Through the collaborative use of the Community Reinvestment Act, Section 3, and the Fair Housing Act, community organizations will learn how to work together to increase access to financial services, economic opportunities, and strong diverse communities. By working together and using these public leverage tools, we can effectively transform our under-served communities.
