SOCAP Podcast Money + Meaning 2.3 The New American Dream: Creating Intergenerational Wealth for All

For generations, people from all backgrounds have come to the US in pursuit of the American Dream: opportunity, access, resources and ultimately ownership. Yet many minorities are systematically excluded from drivers of wealth, such as home ownership and entrepreneurship. As a result, the racial wealth gap is widening, with predictions that by 2020 the median white household will own 86x more wealth than its black counterpart, and 68x more wealth than its Latino one. This panel explores systemic issues that have led to this inequity, why catalyzing wealth creation for communities of color should be a national imperative, and how we can invest in historically marginalized communities.
