CoCap 2018

Closing the Racial Wealth Gap

October 22nd, 2018 5pm - 9pm

This year marks our fifth annual COCAP event.

The theme this year is Closing the Racial Wealth Gap. We will examine strategies for a more equitable economy that creates well being for all. The conference will highlight community wealth building innovations that are working toward leveling the playing field. Along with learning what we need to do, to create a fair and inclusive economy, we will discuss who we need to be to truly close the gap.

Additionally, we will have booths filled with credit unions and socially responsible banks, as well as other organizations support racial equity work in the WE economy.
