United for Equity
Working to build a community that fights for economic justice and equity in every community and at every level
Racial injustice and inequality are morally wrong and economically inefficient, but the racial wealth gap is still widening. In 2019, the median wealth for white family was $188,200 whereas median for a Black family was $24,100.
Wealth concentration has created a cycle of devaluation for less wealthy Americans, meaning markets have failed to build meaningful data around their needs to help systems effectively invest in Black communities and eliminate the racial wealth gap.
The United for Equity campaign combats this problem in order to foster economic equity in the United States through a 5-step approach.
5-Point Approach to Building Economic Equity in America
Building Wealth For All
Empowering Black Americans through tools, access, and agency
Expanding lending and investments to Black homeowners and businesses
Creating united campaign and narrative across sectors
Securing buy-in and commitment from the economically powerful
Providing medical debt relief for struggling families
By creating a unified campaign with diverse stakeholders, United for Equity meet Black Americans wherever they are in their financial journey and uplift them to the next level.
