A new paradigm is emerging – one in which mainstream investors want to invest in the social, environmental and economic well-being of American communities.

Black and Brown communities have long cried out for investment in needed infrastructure and services. Instead, they have received over-policing, incarceration, and divestment. As investors we have both the opportunity and responsibility to act. The time is long overdue to reimagine public safety and (re)invest in the wealth and health of Black and Brown communities.
Join us to learn from the gold standard community led alternatives to policing and incarceration led by formerly incarcerated communities and the investors and financial institutions leveraging a broad spectrum of financial instruments and structures to scale them and invest with them to reimagine their communities and unlock economic development from within.
