NCRC: Why Were You There?

We had a great opportunity to interview several attendees of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition’s 2011 annual conference on what they hoped to achieve, some of the issues they planned to raise with their legislators, and what tips they wanted to bring back to their communities and organizations.

One of those attendees was Joby Thoyalil, a program associate at the New York City–based Neighborhood Economic Development Advocacy Project (NEDAP). This was his first time attending, though NEDAP has had a presence at NCRC in past years. We spoke to him at the outset of the conference, and here’s what he had to say.

We’ll have more videos featuring insights and commentary from conference attendees posted shortly. Check back here at Rooflines, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates.
