Strategies for Economic Security 
The recently released report by the CBCF, " Policy Reform, Industry Accountability, and strategies for Economic Security" takes a critical look at the lack of funding for pension plans and strategies for economic empowerment, specifically for the African-American community. 

"The crisis of underfunded public pension plans has risen to a new level of concern in the United States. Over 280 state-administered public pension plans, holding $3 trillion in assets, are grossly underfunded. According to the American Legislative Exchange Council, state public pension plans are now underfunded by nearly $5.6 trillion dollars - an increase of almost $900 billion over the amount noted in the 2014 State Budget Solutions comprehensive report."
