Our continued existence depends on our use of power-with not power over.

Current structures tend to favor ownership by people who already have amassed capital. New vehicles like CIFs are necessary to expand the benefits to a broader pool, and allow communities to drive local economic activity.

I'm committed to finding ways to help our small town move forward and become a more resilient community. These kinds of funds would help that effort be successful.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Community investment funds that are easy to build and actually meet the needs of communities could be a real game-changer -- for regular people who want to build wealth by investing locally and for entrepreneurs who need capital to grow. Every community in America needs at least one of these. I hope the decisionmakers in Congress and at the SEC will see how important this is and will seize the moment!

Thanks for adding your voice.

We need more tools to help small businesses access capital to launch and grow their businesses. New types of Community Investment Funds are particularly important to empower women, minority and rural entrepreneurs with mission-aligned capital and to allow for new vehicles for wealth creation in communities historically locked out from wealth creation through investment in private companies.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I believe in the power of local community to chart their own destiny and pool their resources together in a way that works for them. Small towns need a shot in the arm and this is one of the best tools we can use to help them. Please allow new CIFs!

Thanks for adding your voice.

The America I believe in is about people working together to build strong and equitable communities. Our economic systems ought to support collaborative, grassroots community development; and our legislators and regulators need to develop the framework of securities rules and regs to better allow for it!
