Working at CRC
Our small team has a large scale impact on banking and financial policies and practices – both across California and on the national stage. We’ve negotiated over $35 billion worth of investments for low-income communities in California. We’re working directly with immigrant families to make sure that everyone in our state has access to economic opportunity and financial security. And we’re not shy about taking on the rich and powerful; our advocacy has resulted in groundbreaking new corporate practices and public policies that promote economic justice.
The California Reinvestment Coalition builds an inclusive and fair economy that meets the needs of communities of color and low-income communities by ensuring that banks and other corporations invest and conduct business in our communities in a just and equitable manner. We envision a future in which people of color and low-income people live and participate fully and equally in financially healthy and stable communities without fear of displacement, and have the tools necessary to build household and community wealth.
3 reasons you should join our team:
- You will contribute to the most pressing issues facing California and our country– advancing the work to rectify the wealth disparities resulting from decades of redlining. We activate our members to achieve much needed racial and economic justice by holding banks accountable in making meaningful community investments, advocating for tenants and low to moderate income home buyers, securing access to technical support and capital for small businesses, and more.
- You will build power for our communities. We are developing the infrastructure that enables communities to participate in building a just economy that centers people over profit, particularly people of color. We train spokespeople to tell their stories to the press and educate the elected officials alike. We conduct deep and innovative action reach to inform our winning strategy including litigation.
- You will work in a dynamic and collaborative environment. We are a small and mighty team. We communicate well, take pride in our independently held work and support each other.
