NCRC and Attendee’s Duty of Care

2022 Just Economy Conference

NCRC is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all Just Economy Conference attendees. Our decisions and preventive measures will be guided by the requirements and recommendations of the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), federal and local health authorities. We are working with the Washington Hilton on implementing preventative measures to reduce the potential spread of the COVID-19 virus at the conference.

Preventive measures include, but are not limited to:

  • Providing the hotel and/or NCRC proof of vaccination or negative test on-site
  • Enhanced sanitization of meeting and exhibit spaces
  • Hand sanitizing stations throughout the meeting and exhibit spaces

The responsibility for a safe and healthy event environment is shared among NCRC, the hotel, and every participant. All conference participants are expected to adhere to and abide by the safety precautions NCRC is implementing to protect against the spread of COVID-19.

As part of your duty of care responsibilities, you should not attend the conference if you:

  • are experiencing, or within the 10 days prior, have experienced signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
  • believe that you may have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19.
  • have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by the health care team responsible for your treatment.

Conference attendees should self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and are asked to contact NCRCat csabharwal@ncrc.org if they experience symptoms of COVID-19 within 10 days after the conference. Should any positive cases be reported within the 10-day timeframe,NCRC will communicate this information to all registered participants. Any private health or personal data received by NCRC will be treated as confidential and stored in a secure database that is only accessible to authorized personnel.

Please note that by checking the box during the online registration process, you agree to adhere to the precautions and policies above and understand that you knowingly and freely assume all risks related to illness and infectious diseases, including but not limited to COVID-19, by attending this event. You understand that refusal to adhere to these policies and abide by these precautions may result in immediate removal from the event and cancellation of the registration, without receiving a refund.

*All policies are subject to change. Should changes be made, a notification will be sent to all registered attendees. 

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.
