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.
CRC is the largest statewide community reinvestment coalition in the country, with over 300 member organizations across California that provide services to tens of thousands of low-income residents. We have the network, experience, and expertise to effectively challenge the root causes of economic inequality affecting low-income, racial minority, rural, and immigrant households. CRC members include affordable housing developers, community development financial institutions, fair housing agencies, financial counseling organizations, housing counseling agencies, small business technical assistance providers, legal services agencies, and other community based organizations.
We strongly encourage people of color, people of diverse gender identities, women, people with disabilities, LGBT individuals, and foreign-born individuals to apply for job openings. CRC provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, status as a protected veteran, status as an individual with a disability, or other applicable legally protected characteristics. In addition to federal law requirements, CRC complies with applicable state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment.
