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.
