Jaime Weisberg (she/her) is ANHD's Senior Campaign Analyst for Responsible Banking. She leads ANHD’s bank reinvestment work, Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) advocacy, ANHD’s Equitable Reinvestment Coalition (ERC), a member-led coalition that believes racial and economic justice and equity must be central to our financial system.  

In her nearly 9 years at ANHD, Jaime has written seven editions of ANHD’s State of Bank Reinvestment in NYC reports, as well as papers on economic development under the CRA and racial disparities in lending. She routinely submits regulatory comments that inform federal bank regulation regarding HMDA, CRA implementation, and CRA modernization; she led NYC’s efforts to oppose the Trump Administration’s efforts to weaken the CRA. Her bank advocacy has resulted in responsive bank products, practices, and community development activity. Two major multifamily lenders committed to ANHD’s multifamily best practices; DFS issued guidance for all state-chartered banks.  She currently sits on three bank community advisory boards and consults with others on their CRA practices. 

Prior to ANHD, she led a grassroots community organization based in northwestern Queens.  She has an MSW from the University of Denver, and a BS in Engineering from Cornell University. She grew up in Westchester and has lived in Queens for over 15 years. She lives in Jackson Heights with her partner, their two children, and their cat. She is active locally where she can, and thoroughly enjoys seeing neighbors out on 34th Avenue and local playgrounds!
