a focus on equity

Our Mission

BDF is making real change in California communities. BDF works across the public and private sector to advocate for equitable policies that create housing at all levels of affordability. Through statewide advocacy, education, and engagement, BDF strengthens the capacity of its members in support of a shared commitment to equitable real estate development.

Community empowerment

What We Do

In 2020, Black Developers Forum (BDF) was formed to empower and support Black real estate developers by creating a more equitable future for California. BDF members engage in different facets of real estate development from affordable and multifamily housing, to community cultural and commercial project types.

BDF is making positive change by transforming the real estate development industry.  We create and leverage initiatives and programs that help Black real estate developers further Black economic power.
