Summit Overview

In this 4-week symposium, we will unpack a shared vision of eliminating barriers and enhancing access to economic sustainability in Black and Latino communities. Closing the racial wealth gap is imperative to realizing a strong, sustainable economy.
The summit will provide a space for banking institutions and the communities they intend to serve to discuss access to capital, affordable housing, neighborhood development, and community reinvestment for these underserved populations.

The Need

For decades, black and brown communities have been underserved—and sometimes unserved—by the United States’ financial system. From access to banking services to redlining to subprime mortgage lending to the recent disparities in relief for small minority businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, communities of color have historically been disproportionately impacted.
