“Beyond Foreclosures: The Impact of the Financial Crisis on the Wealth Gap and Economic Opportunity”
Thursday, June 3
Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago
230 S. LaSalle St.
It is likely that the ongoing financial and economic crisis has left a lasting, negative impact on the financial stability of many of Chicago’s most vulnerable populations, including communities of color. Credit scores, bankruptcy filings, and other issues have become increasingly important to long-term financial stability because they directly impact access not only to credit, but also to basic banking services and even employment.
“Beyond Foreclosures: The Impact of the Financial Crisis on the Wealth Gap and Economic Opportunity” will explore how the economic and foreclosure crisis has changed the landscape of access to financial services and, in particular, how it has affected credit scores and bankruptcy rates in communities of color. Hosted by Woodstock Institute and the Illinois Community Investment Coalition.
