Rising inequality all across our nation is a result of intentional economic policy changes that have been implemented in the past 40 years. This workshop will explore state and federal policies that contribute to the growing wealth divide in America; with a focus will be on the color of wealth and the disparate impact these policies have had on communities of color.
