United for Equity

Creating economic justice and equity in every community and at every level

Racial injustice and inequality are morally wrong and economically inefficient. Yet, the racial wealth gap is still widening. In 2019, the median wealth for a 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 is an initiative that combats this problem in order to foster economic equity in the United States. Our approach:  


  1. Build a united coalition and narrative of impact across sectors 

  2. Empower Black Americans through tools, access, and agency

  3. Expand lending and investments to Black homeowners and business 

  4. Secure meaningful commitments and actions from the economically powerful
