Together we'll explore difficult questions, challenge our assumptions, discover our blind spots, un-learn, deconstruct, pause, reset, and re-imagine.

The Color of Law, the Color of Money - Restorative Solutions to Redress the Racial Wealth Gap

August 27, 2020 11:30 AM PDT

COVID has laid bare the inadequacies of capitalism dealing with large-scale problems impacting marginalized people. For Black communities in particular, the impact of historic racial inequality has widened gaps in healthcare, adequate housing and education. But the most challenging issue is the racial wealth gap. Capitalism must be reimagined to work for all. What needs to happen in the area of racial equity? How best to address the persistence of the racial wealth gap? Join us in a conversation led by Tynesia Boyea-Robinson and Darrick Hamilton, and moderated by Net Impact Board Chair, Cecily Joseph.
