In the new Congress and Presidential Administration how can we build not only the infrastructure needed for more just and equitable communities but also mend the fractures we face as a nation?
What new or strengthened public policies can reverse the hollowing out of Black, Latino, Indigenous, urban and rural communities that have for generations been excluded from the dividends of economic growth?
In the urgency for a just and equitable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, what roles can foundations play to increase capital flowing to and through community development financial institutions and minority depository institutions? ?
This webinar is part of a Public Policy Learning Series, presented in partnership with The U.S. Impact Investing Alliance, Opportunity Finance Network, Urban Institute, U.S. Economic Development Administration, and the Council on Foundations. Stay tuned for more events in the coming weeks.
