Insight Center for Community Economic Development
The COVID-19 Crisis is illuminating the inequitable rules, policies and structures of our economy. The Pandemic is quickly shedding light on how persistent racial wealth and income inequality leads to further economic marginalization of families of color and women in times of national emergency. Working towards structural change and centering the needs and plight of women and people of color is more important now than ever. We are now called to not only expose historical truths that continue to inflict harm but to also shine a light on systems of wealth extraction and barriers to accumulating assets as they are being built anew post COVID-19 pandemic. Anne will share why we must concentrate on undoing the root causes of racial wealth inequality by focusing on anti-Black racism, residential segregation and extractive corporate practices.
