Racial Equity Basics: An Actionable Plan Forward

May 16, 10:00 am EDT - 3:30 pm EDT

Join NCRC’s National Training Academy on May 16, 2022, 10 am- 3:30 pm ET for a virtual training on how to create an actionable plan for racial equity at your organization.

Our society is amid two pandemics. We are slowly recovering from a health pandemic, as well as a racial pandemic, which has plagued our nation since its inception. Institutional racism has and continues to provide economic advantages to White people while preventing wealth creation for the Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) community. Join NCRC for this course which will introduce the history of race and racism in the United States and how it shows up in all areas in our society. 

We will discuss tangible examples of what racial equity work looks like and how it can be done successfully within organizations. We will also discuss how racism may show up within organizations and what an equitable plan of action can look like. 

We all have a role to play in establishing an anti-racist society.  We will together embark on a racial equity journey that will help leadership better understand racial economic inequalities and the challenges of ?nancial security for People of Color. This course will also help to educate leaders on how to strengthen their advocacy and programmatic efforts by establishing a plan of action for how organizations can work towards a racially equitable society.

Redlining and Neighborhood Health

Before the pandemic devastated minority communities, banks and government officials starved them of capital.

Lower-income and minority neighborhoods that were intentionally cut off from lending and investment decades ago today suffer not only from reduced wealth and greater poverty, but from lower life expectancy and higher prevalence of chronic diseases that are risk factors for poor outcomes from COVID-19, a new study shows.

The new study, from the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) with researchers from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health and the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab, compared 1930’s maps of government-sanctioned lending discrimination zones with current census and public health data.
