The Closing the Racial Wealth Gap workshop helps participants critically examine the way in which race shapes the distribution of resources and privilege in the U.S. We use several participatory activities and dialogue to analyze the role of government in supporting (for people of European descent) or blocking (for people of color) the accumulation of assets. The workshop also reviews strategies, campaigns, and actions that will help close the racial wealth divide and promote create greater economic equality in general.

The Closing the Racial Wealth Gap presentation is the 2nd in a series of three workshops that focuses on tools that we, as individual organizations, and together as a coalition, can use to work more effectively for economic justice. This workshop series is organized by the
