Bay Area AFN’s Annual Symposium: Assets Matter: Building an Inclusive Economy for All

Nov 20, 2014

The California Asset Building Coalition (CABC), Bay Area Asset Funders Network, and Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco invite you to our 5th Annual Assets Symposium on November 20, 2014 in San Francisco. The theme for this year's event is Assets Matter: Building an Inclusive Economy for All Californians. This all-day symposium brings together policymakers, advocates, practitioners, funders, and elected officials from across the state who are committed to the economic success of low-wealth families.

Featured speakers include Martin Eakes, Chief Executive Officer, Self-Help/Center for Responsible Lending and Jacob Kornbluth, Director of Inequality for All and new co-founder of the Inequality for All Media Project with Robert Reich.

We will elevate the best and brightest policies and programs that expand economic opportunity and spur financial inclusion at the local and state levels. The symposium promises to provide a dynamic peer-to-peer learning experience through a variety of plenary lectures, workshops, and networking reception. We promise you will be inspired by the great work around the state and leave ready to tackle the economic challenges facing a growing majority of Californians.

To present in front of prominent leaders, we invite you to submit a presentation proposal. The application and guidelines are available at For more information, email
