Actions and Detail Panel
COMMUNITY INVESTMENT SUMMIT
Fri, March 24, 2017, 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM PDT
The crisis of income inequality, gentrification and racial injustice demands urgent action to strengthen programs, businesses and policies that will build economic security in low income neighborhoods and communities of color. For numerous reasons, African American and Latino stakeholders must be empowered to access, lead and own the processes related to delivering the long-term solutions they need.
The California Urban Partnership's Community Investment Initiative and Summit provides a structured process that turns conversations, data driven ideas, energy and resources into successful outcomes at a local level. More than a process, our collective impact Initiative provides technical assistance, capacity building and fund development support to organize dynamic partnership efforts that strengthen local programs, businesses and policy solutions. We anticipate the presence of business, community, youth, elected, education, health, government and philanthropic leaders and stakeholders from the Sacramento Region. Attendees will meet to work in Action Teams, refine Action Plans and commit to specific implementation steps forlong term joint venture projects focused on:
