FedTalk: Connecting the Dots … Redlining and the CRA in the Community
Wednesday, February 17, 2021
12:00 PM – 1:30 PM EST
At our December FedTalk, we discussed some ways the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) can be leveraged for greater impact. The law was established more than 40 years ago to prevent redlining, the discriminatory practice of denying people access to credit based on race. Now, the Fed is seeking to modernize the rules it uses to implement CRA, so we are continuing the conversation about this landmark legislation.
February’s FedTalk will focus on CRA ties to redlining, the impact in the community, and how people (maybe you) can address redlining and its consequences today.
Wednesday, February 17, 2021
Noon to 1:30 pm EST
A Q&A session will follow the panel discussion.
