MISSION

The Problem: The racial wealth gap has become one of the defining issues of our generation. There is a stark 10x difference between black and white household wealth, with a median net worth of $17,150 versus $171,000 respectively (Forbes, 2020). The racial wealth gap continues to grow while the country’s population becomes more diverse and is anticipated to be “minority white” by the year 2045 (Brookings Institute).
