Working Together to Serve Diverse Communities: A Virtual Resource Fair

Event Description

Wednesday, August 5, 2020 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Central Time
Thursday, August 6, 2020 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Central Time

Black, Latino, and other communities of color have been affected by the disproportionate effect of the COVID-19 pandemic and its exacerbation of economic disparities, and by challenges involving cries for justice and equality that have caught national attention.

Join us for a two-day virtual resource fair on August 5–6 hosted by the Federal Trade Commission. Nine federal agencies will share information concerning their missions and programs that are available to address these challenges and to strengthen the diverse individuals, families, and organizations that they serve. This information-packed event offers a roadmap to access federal services, build stronger relationships, and explore ways that we can work together to better serve Black, Latino, and other communities of color.

  • On Wednesday, August 5, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, U.S. Department of Justice Community Relations Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will share information concerning programs related to housing, community healing, nutrition and food stability, childcare and development, family assistance, and healthcare for older Americans, people with disabilities, and individuals suffering or at risk of addictive or mental disorders.
  • On Thursday, August 6, the U.S. Department of Labor Wage and Hour Division, U.S. Small Business Administration, Federal Trade Commission, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas will share resources addressing economic and financial interests, including employment, entrepreneurship, fraud prevention, investing, and banking.

No registration is required. The conference is free and open to the public. Contact us at WorkingTogether@ftc.gov to share your suggestions and recommendations for the program.
