Save the Date: Woodstock Institute 40th Anniversary Research Symposium and Bash

Written by Dory Rand on March 8, 2013 - 12:00am
The Scheinfeld family of Woodstock, Illinois, recognized in 1973 a pressing need for action on problems that plagued low-wealth communities and communities of color in Illinois, such as redlining, housing discrimination, and disinvestment. The Scheinfelds established Woodstock Institute to fight these societal ills, and we continue that fight today. To celebrate 40 years of applied research and advocacy on fair lending, wealth creation, community investment, and financial systems reform issues, Woodstock Institute will host a national research symposium and bash entitled Babies, Boomers, & Beyond: Economic Security, Community Prosperity, & Equity Across the Lifespan, on October 2-3, 2013.

Register for the event.
