Racial Wealth Gap Follow-Up Session

June 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Hosted by our co-clerk Beverly Ward, we’ll debrief and discuss the racial wealth gap learning simulation. In our prior session, participants learned how federal policies created structural inequalities—property ownership and education are just two among many areas affected—and how these policies increase hunger and poverty in communities of color.

The simulation guided participants to an understanding of why racial equity is so important to ending hunger and poverty in the United States. The hope is that participants, in becoming more aware of structural inequality, can support policies that undo and/or reduce disparities. In this follow-up session, we will reflect, debrief, and discuss way forward together.

The event was well-attended and many participants asked for a follow-up session. You are welcome to attend, whether or not you attended the May 17 session. Please register (you should register again even if you attended the first session in May).  If you did not attend the May 17 workshop, please view this recording of the Racial Wealth Gap learning simulation prior to June 21st.
