Being Unbanked/Underbanked: What is it and how does it impact the DC community?

CAAB and Partners invite you to a conversation on September 24th about economic issues affecting DC’s individuals, families and communities and critical tools that can measurably improve financial well-being. Like our at-capacity and lively first two meetings in February and May, and future sessions, this meeting will consider current research and best practices. This session will focus exploring what it is to be unbanked or underbanked, how it impacts low- and moderate-income individuals and explore ways to address this issue in the District of Columbia. Participants can expect a robust discussion about cross-sector credit strategies that can contribute significantly to a more inclusive, equitable DC economy.
