CRC sues Trump Administration

California Reinvestment Coalition (CRC) and Democracy Forward sued the Trump administration for defying the Dodd-Frank Act by unlawfully failing to collect and disclose data on lending to women-owned, minority-owned and small businesses. Dodd-Frank requires the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to collect this data from financial institutions and make it publicly available to facilitate enforcement of fair lending laws to curb lending discrimination.

Disrupting Displacement Financing

California’s displacement crisis most affects residents of color and low-income residents who can no longer afford to live in the communities they have been a part of, often for generations. Banks and investors who sign on to our Anti-Displacement Code of Conduct vow not to finance landlords who use loopholes to evict tenants, but instead to invest in affordable housing.

Here to Stay

Immigrants are integral to California’s economy and culture. In the face of heightened anti-immigrant policies and rhetoric, CRC’s work helps to ensure that everyone has access to the American Dream. This campaign develops immigrant grassroots leaders to advocate for community-driven solutions to the challenges of income instability and economic mobility, while driving civic participation.
