CDFIs - The Longtime Champions of Racial Equity and Justice

    Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) have been around for decades, and they have a long history of investing in local institutions, providing financing to marginalized communities, and striving to change the systems that keep racial disparity in place. In this webinar, we met some of the innovators working within and alongside these community development champions to make progress toward racial equity and justice in the US.

    Our speakers included James Bason of TruFund Financial Services, Caroline Yarborough from Calvert Impact Capital, and Jordana Fremed of CapShift.

    All recoverable grants and investments in securities carry the risk of capital loss. Recoverable grants are not securities, are not investments, and carry risks specific to each grant, including the risk of losing money. Recoverable grants and securities are not FDIC insured, are not bank guaranteed, and may lose value. Investing in securities involves risk, and there is always the potential of losing money when you invest in securities.
