We then in 2021 created the Biden Harris Universal Human Rights Inauguration Ball as a official virtual conference hosted on January 20th 2021 as a Zoom, Facebook live and YouTube stream at 7PM EST.
On January 20th, 2021 the Universal Human Rights Inauguration Ball wasbased on the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the current human rights review of the USA and the change to be brought about by the Biden Harris administration through Executive Orders that day.
We did this as part of the UN Universal Periodic Review (#UNUPR) of the USA that started 11.9.20. The US State Dept. responded to our proposal on 11.12.20. We plan to build on our Public Private Partnership (P3) solution, in part, over the first 100 days in Office of the Biden Harris Administration (Day 200 is April 20th 2021) using the over $194B in established bank based community benefit agreements in our national coalition that are in place today.
The Universal Human Rights Inauguration Ball was called in the name of human rights and in support of the International Association for People with Disabilities which was established last year by Friends of the African Union and the African Diaspora Directorate through the Friends of the African Union smartWISE Community Reinvestment Coalition of Hamilton County People with Disabilities Council action on December 3rd, 2020 which was the International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

The Working Group of Experts on People of African Descent (WGEPAD) public 27th session, entitled “The Urgency of Now: Systemic Racism and the Lessons of 2020” will be held from 30 November to 3 December, 14.00-16.00 (CET).
This thematic session will build on the WGEPAD’s report COVID-19, systemic racism and global protests and set the scene for the mid-term review of the International Decade for people of African descent and 20th anniversary of the DDPA. It will include discussions on the key themes and priorities for the protection of the human rights of people of African descent, positive developments, good practices and how to address systemic racism based on international human rights law.
The Working Group encourages States to invest financially through the setting
up a fund for people of African descent and also investing in areas of education and awareness-raising on DDPA, the POA, and on the legacy of people of African descent.
We followed their recommendations before they issued them with our public-private partnership with the US State Department on November 9th, 2020 and here is our proposal submitted December 4th, 2020 to the working group:
Enclosed including old on myself with CASH community development and under the by authority granted in section 5902 of title 38, United States Code, the Veterans Administration (VA) may recognize organizations for the purpose of assisting claimants for VA benefits in the preparation, presentation, and prosecution of their claims.

The National Community Reinvestment Coalition and its grassroots member organizations such as us create opportunities for people to build wealth. We work with community leaders, policymakers and financial institutions to champion fairness and end discrimination in lending, housing and business.
NCRC was formed in 1990 by national, regional and local organizations to increase the flow of private capital into traditionally underserved communities. NCRC has grown into an association of more than 600 community-based organizations that promote access to basic banking services, affordable housing, entrepreneurship, job creation and vibrant communities for America’s working families.
Members include FAU and AfDiDi along with community reinvestment organizations; community development corporations; local and state government agencies; faith-based institutions; community organizing and civil rights groups; minority and women-owned business associations, as well as local and social service providers from across the nation.
It provides us with agenda-setting research, training, insight and advocacy on behalf of members; with it we can renovate and build affordable homes for low- and moderate-income families; we can work with members to provide counseling to home buyers and owners and business-building expertise to entrepreneurs; we will use it to train and support housing counselors nationwide; we look for it to test, monitor and challenge discrimination in financial services and housing; and we use it to convene and facilitate dialog between financial institutions and community networks such ourselves to increase lending, investments and philanthropy in neighborhoods that need it.
NCRC represents its members before Congress, federal regulatory agencies and the press. NCRC routinely testifies before Congress, and meets with the leadership of banking and financial regulatory agencies. NCRC frequently provides expert commentary for national, regional and local media, and our research and policy papers are routinely cited by journalists, economists and scholars focused on banking, housing, urban renewal, rural development and civil rights.
...... the American Bankers Association (AB), together with several other trade associations, called on the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) to withdraw the agency’s Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) rule change made final in May 2020; instead asking for all three banking agencies to work together on new rules.
Jesse Van Tol, CEO of the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC), made the following statement:
“This has been a bad week for the OCC’s disastrous CRA rule. First, we won our preliminary battle in federal court by demonstrating that we have standing to sue the agency. And now, the trade organizations that represent bankers have also called for the OCC to withdraw its rule.
“I think it is clear what the new Biden Administration must do. Just like other Trump Administration policies that have been rescinded or replaced, it is time to do the same for the OCC’s CRA rule.
“The Federal Reserve has an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) for CRA currently on the table. While we would like to see some aspects of their approach strengthened, we believe the Fed’s ANPR is a good starting point to bring the agencies together and produce a unified rule.”
Enclosed is our comments to the OCC and the CRA relationship to the BfP.
