Why are people rich? An antiracist analysis

November 10, 2018  9am-2pm
St James Lutheran Church, 5129 Wolf Rd,

Western Springs                        708-246-6228

Hosted by the Metropolitan Chicago Synod Anti-racism team      REGISTER at www.anotherpebble.org

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.
