We acknowledge inequitable impacts of race on economic mobility. We are actively learning and seeking ways to mitigate these inequities.
Data and research tell us that the chances of "moving up" economically are significantly determined by a person's race, family income, and zip code in childhood – factors that are beyond his or her control. Due to systemic racism, income inequality is especially persistent for people of color.
Seeking to address barriers to racial equity is a cross-cutting objective for our four strategies: community, government, data, and nonprofits.
