Recovery for all Californians: COVID-19 Resources and Updates
Crises are not great equalizers; they lay bare racial inequities and uncover deep structural flaws in social and economic systems. We are working to ensure relief and recovery efforts are combined with fundamental structural changes that shift power to people and communities, so that capital is redistributed equitably and economic decisions are made democratically.
Holding Banks Accountable
CRC works to secure public, detailed, written commitments to communities from banks. We advocate for a robust Community Reinvestment Act while encouraging banks to meet the needs of the communities in which they do business.
Economic Equity Promotoras
Throughout our history, CRC has developed and implemented successful public education campaigns that help to build and sustain household wealth for low-income communities and communities of color.
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.
Developing Grassroots Leaders
In partnership with our members, CRC builds people power by developing a new generation of leaders from low-income communities to improve policies and practices that affect their economic well-being.
