Event description

Description

Join CCEDA in Los Angeles on Thursday, October 18th for the 2018 Teaching and Learning Conference.

Each year, CCEDA’s hallmark event brings together community economic development (CED) practitioners, funders, policymakers, thought leaders, and advocates from across California for a full day of conversation, education, collaboration, and action. This year’s conference will focus on new and emerging community economic development topics, including:

Defend the Community Reinvestment Act!

Last updated in the 1990’s, there is broad consensus that modernization of CRA is needed. But OCC’s proposals would loosen regulations and put low and moderate income families at risk. Proposed changes would also threaten community development projects and programs while eroding protections for under-served communities. Join Jesse Van Tol, CEO of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC) and leading national advocate, for an important conversation about the current challenge to the CRA, an overview of the OCC’s proposals and likely effects for our communities, and how we can all mobilize to ensure a CRA that works for all.

Community Resiliency and Managing Climate Change in Underserved Communities

Climate change is our new normal and it is increasingly clear that California will face a number of growing threats as climate change takes its course. Now is the time to think about adaptation and building climate resiliency in vulnerable low and moderate income communities. Join Jonathan Parfrey and Bryn Lindblad of Climate Resolve for a timely conversation about the latest climate projections in California, anticipated effects for our communities, what’s needed to strengthen resiliency in LMI communities, and what we can all do to prepare our neighborhoods for the future.

Navigating Community Development

Robert Zdenek and Dee Walsh, two veterans of the field, have authored a new book titled Navigating Community Development. The book describes the evolution of the sector and shares how community development organizations can advance their missions through strategic partnerships built upon core competencies. Keying on the concept of “comparative advantage”, Robert and Dee will guide attendees through detailed case studies, an analysis of organizational competencies, and will highlight important skills and tools that may need attention and development into the future. Join us to discuss these themes from the book and implications for the future of the community economic development field.

Lifetime Achievement Award: B. Kwaku Duren

This year, CCEDA recognizes B. Kwaku Duren for the Lifetime Achievement Award. Throughout a distinguished career in law and community activism, Mr. Duren’s work has strengthened communities and served as an inspiration to many. His achievements include defending numerous high profile civil rights and police brutality cases, as well as organizing a number of community groups such as the Coalition Against Police Abuse, Community Services Unlimited, the Intercommunal Youth Institute, and the Southern California Chapter of the Black Panther Party. Join us in celebrating and honoring Mr. Duren’s illustrious career!
