The event will reveal insights from the African American Financial Capability Initiative (AAFCI), a three-year effort facilitated by Prosperity Now (formerly CFED). The initiative supports communities of practice that tailor financial stability projects to the needs of six communities across the Pacific Northwest and the Midwest through the collaborative work of 30+ black-led nonprofits in Portland, Oregon; Seattle and Tacoma, Washington; Des Moines, Iowa; Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota. Each community of practice addresses the racial wealth divide with innovative approaches.
In addition to presenting findings from the AAFCI, Prosperity Now’s Racial Wealth Divide Initiative (RWDI) team will showcase its unique approach to technical assistance for local organizations working to innovate economic systems through a racial equity lens. You’ll hear about lessons learned and successful concepts that can be applied to other efforts.
The event is being held in Washington, DC, but you can participate through a free live stream provided by Prosperity Now.
