Next Generation of Community Development Leaders: Join NCRC for the Emerging Leaders Reception at the 2022 Just Economy Conference

The National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) invites young professionals to join us for the Emerging Leaders Reception, Monday, June 13, 2022, from 5 to 6 pm ET in Washington, DC, during the 2022 Just Economy Conference. The conference schedule includes an array of sessions on organizing, policy advocacy, community and economic development with leaders working towards a just economy.

NCRC’s Emerging Leaders Reception is a networking event for young professionals from across the country pursuing a career in the community development field.

“The emerging leaders reception offers rising leaders in the economic development field a chance to network with NCRC’s national network of community development organizations, as well as other national nonprofits,” said Sabrina Terry, NCRC’s Chief of Programs and Strategic Development. “It also provides a critical opportunity to connect with other young professionals with varying backgrounds and expertise.”

Students and early career professionals with backgrounds in public policy, urban planning, public administration, economics and related fields are welcome to attend. NCRC also invites its members, sponsors and friends to share this announcement with emerging leaders from their organizations and communities. 

While the reception is part of the Just Economy Conference, you are not required to attend the conference in order to attend the reception. But we sure hope you do!

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.
