Our nation has a substantial racial wealth gap
Our nation is becoming more diverse and more unequal
Our nation will be majority people of color by the middle of this century. Yet, wealth is unambiguously divided along racial lines; Black and Latinx households are disproportionately impacted by the wealth gap
Rooted in historic, institutionalized injustices and supported by practices and policies that serve to entrench inequitable trends these disparities increase wealth for those who already possess significant assets
Becoming an anti-racist Church requires that we advocate and work towards a sustainable, equitable future for all people; in order to do so we must understand the roots of this inequity
around the world.
To know you is to love you…
