But lack of access to capital has kept Black & Latino small business owners from expanding and growing both jobs and wealth. The lack of racial small business lending data was a major obstacle in creating racial economic inclusion. Section 1071 of the Dodd Frank Bill of 2010 mandated that all financial institutions (including online lenders) must report all small business loans by race-gender-census tract. After furious objections from the financial industry, 10 years later, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) announced the new rules for Section 1071 and it is now in a public comment period that will impact the final rules for Section 1071 that will be finally enacted in 2022. Join this session to find out what are the proposed rules and how Black & Latino small business owners and organizations can have a “VOICE” by submitting comments to this new federal law that will shape the final law. CFPB managing counsel, Ms. Elean Babinecz, will provide key details on Section 1071 and the proposed rules for financial institutions and how you can access this racial small business loan data in your city. In closing of session, leaders of the National Minority Community Reinvestment Co-Operative unveil Project 50 where they will work with Black & Latino leaders in 50 cities to publish and promote Section 1071 lending data for their cities to let Blacks & Latinos in these 50 cities which financial institutions are practicing “Racial Economic Inclusion” and which ones are practicing “Racial Economic Exclusion”. Moderators: Adam Briones (CEO, California Community Builders, Oakland) Debra Keller-Greene (Chair, Greater Baltimore Black Chamber of Commerce) Dr. Ruben Guerra (LBA, Los Angeles) Kelvin Perry (President, Black Chamber of Commerce of Greater Kansas City) Al Pina (Chair, Florida Minority Community Reinvestment Coalition) Dr. Al Gourrier(Professor, Univ of Baltimore, School of Public & International Affairs) Play Video Play Video 44:05 Building the Journey to Homeownership Join Maria Serravalle, Bank of America and Dina Harris, National Faith Home Buyers as they discuss resources that help real estate professionals prepare and understand their clients’ life priorities and unique situations.

Speaker: Maria Serravalle- VP Homeownership Solutions and Homebuyer Education, Bank of America Moderators: Dina Harris- CEO, National Faith Home Buyers-Detroit & Atlanta Play Video Play Video 01:03:29 Addressing the Racial Wealth Gap with Housing & Small Business The pandemic has brought disproportionate hardship to communities across the nation, but it is also presenting an opportunity – a historic moment to make different, more intentional, more equitable choices in how we approach economic recovery. How can the housing sector rethink forbearance, gentrification, inventory, renter demand, and more to expand safe, affordable homes for all? How can the ecosystem of support for small businesses and commercial real estate be reimagined and strengthened to keep jobs and livelihoods thriving, particularly in communities of color and immigrant neighborhoods? What does greater collaboration across the financial sector, including Community Development Financial Institutions and Minority Depository Institutions, look like now and how can it be more impactful? These important questions and more will be part of a panel discussion focused on how racial equity and innovative financing can strengthen the fabric of communities and the national economy.
