Legacies of Racism Event

On February 24, 2021, IRRPP presented findings from our report on the racial wealth gap centering the life experiences of middle class Black, Latinx, and White families to demonstrate that there is much work to be done to support our middle class families, many of whom are contending today not just with the legacies of past inequities, but also with the ongoing failures of public policy to address basic needs. After the presentation, a panel discussion of contributors to the report spoke about the importance of attending to racial wealth inequities.
