Event description

Description

Join Capital Impact Partners and Mission: Launch for a conversation about the role that financial institutions in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area can play in addressing the needs of returning citizens – individuals re-entering society after incarceration. The convening will identify barriers facing justice-involved individuals, ways in which financial institutions currently engage with customers with criminal records, and how institutions can improve the financial wellbeing of citizens re-entering their local communities.

Returning citizens face an incredible uphill battle. Across the United States, there are more than 44,000 local, state, and federal restrictions for people with convictions, impacting housing, employment, education, health care, and financing. Individuals with criminal records who have not been incarcerated also face significant barriers.

In Washington, D.C., 20,000 people – 3 percent of the District’s population – are involved in the criminal justice system, and approximately 68,000 people have criminal records. This inhibits the financial health of returning citizens and their families, creating and perpetuating unbanked and underbanked community members. While the financial sector presents considerable barriers for returning citizens, it also presents an incredible financial inclusion opportunity. Providing vital services to these local community members not only has the power to create immense social impact, but taps into an underserved market of underbanked potential customers for financial institutions.

Opening remarks by Ellis Carr, president and CEO of Capital Impact Partners, and Teresa Hodge, co-founder & director of Strategy & Innovation of Mission: Launch

Breakfast and lunch will be served.
