Stepping Up to the Challenge of Advancing Racial and Economic Equity.
There are enormous inequities that people of color face in education, health, wealth and employment opportunities. The Census Bureau estimates that the U.S. population will become “majority minority” in 2044. More recently in Massachusetts Latinos account for all the population growth. The opposing forces of rising population diversity amidst persistent exclusion creates greater challenges in closing the racial equality and economic opportunity gaps. Every sector has a role to play, particularly those with the lion’s share of the resources who are uniquely positioned to close the racial and economic gaps.
