The recent Pandemic exposed a monumental economic fault line between white and Black/Latino communities, families and businesses. Blacks and Latinos economically suffered at twice the rate of whites. This session will highlight Baltimore CRA where Black & Latino leaders have come together to meet with the top 11 banks in Baltimore to address racial economic inclusion within these banks that includes calling on banks to provide racially relevant capital. Half of this session will focus on the current modernization of the CRA rules by the Federal Reserve Board, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and FDIC that were announced on May 5, 2022. The 2022 National Black & Latino Economic Summit has extended an invitation to the Joint Interagency (FRB, OCC, FDIC) on Modernization of the CRA to provide an overview of the proposed new CRA rules and how they have been improved to better address the racial economic fault line exposed in the Pandemic.

Blacks, Latinos and people of color are America’s future and must play a more vital role in its economy.

The economic distress of minority communities is the most pressing issue facing Blacks and Latino communities across the United States, but in particular in major minority cities. The lack of businesses and jobs fuels not only a crushing cycle of increasing poverty but also crippling social problems, such as drug abuse and crime in Black and Latino communities. The establishment of a sustainable economic base together with employment opportunities, wealth creation, role models, and improved local infrastructure is critical to the future well-being of Black and Latino communities throughout the United States National Black & Latino civil rights leaders, Black & Latino community development leaders, Black & Latino Senior Bank Executives and Bank CEO featured speakers discuss the importance of racial economic inclusion and that Blacks & Latinos must become more united during this time of increased racial tensions.
