Our honorees embody our theme Preserving Our Community Assets! Catholic Campaign for Human Development is the anti-poverty program of the U.S. Catholic Bishops, working to break the cycle of poverty by helping low-income people participate in decisions that affect their lives, families and communities—preserving the most valuable of our community assets: the people. Much has been written about Richard Cross, esq., in his most recent legal battle against payday lending in Delaware. If you missed it, his work over the years has been all about fighting injustice and preserving the assets the low-income community is able to build from being stripped. Randy Taylor has been a dedicated banker making an impact to causes such as Meals on Wheels and Stepping Stones Community Federal Credit Union. When Fulton Bank had an opportunity to relocate, rather than profiting from the branch in a neighborhood, Randy was able to donate this physical community resource so it can remain a community asset.

The Community Reinvestment Act
The Community Reinvestment Act is intended to encourage depository institutions to help meet the credit needs of the communities in which they operate, including low- and moderate-income neighborhoods, consistent with safe and sound operations. It was enacted by the Congress in 1977 (12 U.S.C. 2901) and is implemented by Regulation BB (12 CFR 228). CRA allows us the opportunity to participate during bank merger hearing. These hearings give us an audience we seldom have: CEOs of the merging banks, bank regulators, and the media. These hearings allow us to push public policy in the right direction AND to raise concerns with the merging banks' practices that are injurious to the health of our community.
