On Wednesday, May 24th, I will be part of the celebration of Northern California Community Loan Fund’s 30th Anniversary to take stock of its impact. I will be speaking on a panel of remarkable professionals discussing what it means to come together as catalysts of change. My comments will focus on the role of Northern California CLF and its peer CDFIs in transforming how we think about finance and capitalism–harking back to the industry’s formative purpose.
NCCLF has a long and remarkable track record of persistent and resilient support for people outside the margins of mainstream, and I am honored to be part of the program.
The program will also include recognition of community heroes who have inspired and advanced the common work the Loan Fund has done with its partners.
Please join me in celebrating 30 years of NCCLF by attending, if you can, or by offering your support with a donation.
