Symposium-Expanding Financial Opportunity: Catapulting Communities Forward

Wed, December 11, 2019 (All day)
Portland, OR


Join Neighborworks America for this special event hosted in conjunction with the Neighborworks America National Training Institute in Portland, Oregon:

Symposium Expanding Financial Opportunity: Catapulting Communities Forward

It is a long-held American belief that financial opportunity exists for all who work hard enough. Yet, as we can see from the widening wealth gap – especially the wealth gap seen in communities of color - financial opportunity is not always simply a matter of individual effort. Join your peers to examine what it means for individuals to have financial opportunity, explore strategies that are being used in communities across the country to remove barriers to wealth building and help people get ahead, and learn about the unique role of housing affordability in creating financial opportunity for individuals and communities.

When: December 11, 2019
