How to support NCRC members in the path of Hurricane Ian

Our thoughts are with all those living in the path of Hurricane Ian, and with the 38 NCRC member organizations in Florida that continue to serve the communities most likely to be impacted by the storm. Other members in Puerto Rico are dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Fiona.

Please consider donating to those NCRC member organizations. Your donation will help them support many people in urgent need in the coming days – and over the longer term, your support will help NCRC members ensure that the recovery and rebuilding of resilient communities honors the Just Economy values we all share.  

We’ve compiled a list of those member organizations so you can donate to them directly.

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.
