Racial Wealth Divide Initiative & Projects
Through its Racial Wealth Divide Initiative, Prosperity Now leverages its connection to national organizations, a growing network of state and local partners, and our core competencies–technical assistance, policy development and advocacy, and applied research–to aggressively address racial economic inequality. The project deploys three primary strategies in its work:
- Strengthen all of Prosperity Now's programs’ ability to address racial wealth inequality and develop stronger analysis of asset poverty in communities of color.
- Launch and implement specific projects that highlight best practices in bridging racial wealth inequality working in collaboration with local and regional organizations.
- Elevate Prosperity Now and its partners as influential voices that drive policy solutions to tackling racial economic inequality at the national, state and local levels.
