About this event


		Woodstock Institute 2021 Economic Justice Awards image

We're thrilled to celebrate the passage of the Illinois Community Reinvestment Act and Predatory Loan Prevention Act this spring, thanks to the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus, Gov. J.B. Pritzker, and a movement of consumer advocates.

Our first event with new CEO Horacio Mendez also marks an opportunity to rededicate ourselves to building a more just economy for communities of color and lower income people.As we celebrate, we also plan to introduce a new dialogue around the past, present and future of redlining and reinvestment:

Hope Unrealized: How Decades of Federal Policy to Combat Racial Segregation Have Failed to “Change the Map”

After 4 decades of creating our Community Lending Fact Book, we decided to look at trends since the 1980s. What happened? What didn't? How can we do better?

After 4 decades of creating our Community Lending Fact Book, we decided to look at trends since the 1980s. Join us to discuss this question: “While the federal Community Reinvestment Act is a necessary anti-discrimination regulation, is it sufficient? And if it isn’t sufficient, what is?”

Join us for a hybrid live/ taped event to celebrate victories of the past year and discuss the strategies we need to build a better future. There is no cost to attend but donations are welcomed. Sponsorship details below.

Scheinfeld Award

In the 1960s, Aaron and Sylvia Scheinfeld established a nonprofit conference center in Woodstock, Illinois to give community leaders a place to work together, free of distractions, on societal issues in the Chicago region such as redlining, inequality, and racial discrimination.

As it became clear the organization needed ongoing commitment to adequately address these issues, the Scheinfelds established the nonprofit Woodstock Institute in Chicago in 1973. Periodically, Woodstock Institute designates deserving champions to receive the Scheinfeld Award to recognize those with a long-term and visionary commitment to financial justice. Prior to Sen. Collins, the last Scheinfeld Award winner was Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan. (2013)
