Fall Workshop (5 of 5): Closing the Racial Wealth Divide

11/09/2010 6:30 pm
11/09/2010 8:30 pm

This newly-revised 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 either supporting (for people of European descent) or blocking (for people of color) the accumulation of assets and, in effect, helping create economic apartheid in the U.S.

"Closing the Racial Wealth Divide" also reviews strategies, campaigns, and actions that will help close the racial wealth divide and promote create greater economic equality in general.

All workshops in our fall 2010 series will be held at the UFE office in Downtown Crossing at 29 Winter Street, 2nd Floor, Boston, MA. Click here for a map. Light refreshments will be provided.

SPACE IS LIMITED TO 20 PARTICIPANTS! Please RSVP to Steve Schnapp at sschnapp@faireconomy.org, or Jeannette Huezo at jhuezo@faireconomy.org.
