As in past years, the conference was capped off with a day on Capitol Hill meeting with members of the House and Senate. Pennsylvania sent dozens of delegates to meet with both Democrats and Republicans. Preserving the Community Reinvestment Act and protecting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from privatization were at the top of the legislative agenda.
It was a year that the subject matter of the conference felt especially urgent and that excitement and desire for change was palpable, from both the speakers and attendees. PCRG continues to look forward to working with NCRC to advance local, state, and federal strategies that center the needs of low-to moderate-income people and people of color.
