The African American Briefing for Financial Professionals (AABFP) is an opportunity for leaders of Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC) to learn from lawmakers, regulators and government leaders on what strategies they are creating to create jobs, grow businesses and revitalize communities.  It is also an opportunity for leaders to learn how they can be a resource to overcome the challenges facing the financial services industry.
