2. Greenlining Institute
Redlining is the illegal practice of denying or limiting services and products to low-income and minority communities. In some instances of redlining, services are provided but at higher costs. Conversely, greenlining is the practice that recognizes business opportunities in low-income and minority communities and provides quality financial services and products at a fair price. By encouraging the greenlining of our neighborhoods, we hope to create wealth and improve the quality of life for all communities. The practice of greenlining recognizes that investing in low-income and minority communities makes business sense and can be profitable. The Greenlining Institute works to improve the quality of life for low-income and minority communities. The institute emerged form the Greenlining Coalition, perhaps the oldest coalition of African American, Asian American/Pacific Islander, and Latino community leaders organized around a common purpose. With the formal founding of the Institute in 1993, Greenlining set out to create an antidote to redlining, the illegal yet common practice of denying, limiting, or overcharging for financial services and products to low-income and minority communities.

3. Center for Community Change
The Center, founded in 1968, grew out of a powerful combination of ideas and events in the 1960s. Many important partners, including the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Fund, the Ford Foundation, and leaders of the United Auto Workers, made the Center for Community Change a reality. From the very beginning, the Center?s purpose has been to help establish and develop community organizations across the country, ?bring attention to major national issues related to poverty,? and ?help insure that government programs are responsive to community needs.?
