Persistent racial wealth inequity in the U.S. stems from a legacy of deep-rooted, systemic racial and economic injustice. Policy decisions – both intentional and careless – have not only systematically excluded people of color from economic opportunity but have extracted wealth from families and communities over many generations.
Addressing racial wealth stratification has been a key focus of work in the economic security field for more than a decade. Where are we in efforts to tackle racial wealth inequities, and what are our next steps for securing policies that foster equity and opportunity for all?
Join us for Getting Real About Racial Wealth Inequities: Reflections & Next Steps, a virtual conversation presented by the Insight Center in partnership with Prosperity Now.
In a moderated discussion, we’ll explore the latest research on racial wealth inequities, reflect on past and current efforts in the field, and identify strategies and pathways for advancing racial wealth equity, now and into the future.
- Anne Price, President of the Insight Center for Community Economic Development; and
- Dedrick Asante-Muhammad, Senior Fellow for the Racial Wealth Divide Initiative at Prosperity Now.
The panel will discuss the myths and realities behind racial wealth inequities, consider potentially transformative policy solutions like universal basic income and a federal jobs guarantee, and share perspectives on the best way forward in today’s political and economic climate. We’ll also consider how race and wealth intersect with mass incarceration, tax policy, climate change, and other pressing issues today.
