Community Organizations to Hold Reinvestment Summit in Baltimore

Baltimore, MD – On Monday, September 28 the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) will host a statewide summit in Baltimore on community reinvestment and neighborhood revitalization in Maryland. The Maryland Reinvestment Summit will feature keynote addresses by U.S. Congressman Elijah Cummings and Benjamin Jealous, Partner at Kapor Capital.

The Summit will include seminars and workshops on economic revitalization, the Community Reinvestment Act, workforce development, violence prevention, investment in youth, health care access, financial opportunity for Maryland’s immigrant community, economic security for older adults, and affordable housing.

“NCRC and our members in Maryland and in the City of Baltimore are committed to combating the wave of disinvestment that is affecting the state’s low- and moderate-income communities,” said NCRC President and CEO John Taylor. “Without bank investment in housing and jobs, no community is able to prosper. The Maryland Reinvestment Summit will bring together community leaders and advocates to share knowledge and best practices, organize and develop strategies for strengthening neighborhoods and communities in order to create a healthy economy that benefits all Maryland residents.”
