Nearly 90 OFN Members and Allies will converge on Capitol Hill for OFN's 2017 Advocacy Day on May 17—and you can join them. Advocate for CDFIs… from your desk!

Participate in OFN’s third annual Virtual Advocacy Day on May 17 and help us amplify the message to urge Congress to fund the CDFI Fund at $250MM for FY18.

Our Virtual Advocacy Day toolkit provides social media tools:

  • Twitter: Auto-tweets, sample tweets, and tips for building your own tweets
  • Facebook: Sample posts
  • Graphics: New infographics using data from the CDFI Fund Transaction Level Report Database that show the impact of CDFI investments nationwide and in states and districts of members of the House and Senate Appropriations Committee
  • Hashtags: A list of the key hashtags to use with our main hashtag—#CDFIsInvest.

Advocating for CDFIs is more important than ever! President Trump's FY18 budget proposal has zeroed out CDFI Fund programs. We look to Congress to restore this vital funding at $250MM for FY18. The industry needs all CDFIs, borrowers, allies, friends, and partners to let Congress know that CDFI investments create jobs, support small business, build affordable housing, provide healthcare, and more. 

Join us for Virtual Advocacy Day—use your network to send the message to Congress that #CDFIsInvest in communities and individuals across America.
