Racial Equity Policy Design and Advocacy: A Primer

Oct 1, 2017

A library full of publications document the fact that many communities of color face a much more difficult road to financial security, stability and prosperity than their White counterparts. This primer aims to identify the elements of advocacy, policy design and implementation practices that improve outcomes for people of color.

Policymakers and advocates interested in approaches that, at minimum, do not exacerbate the wealth divide can start with the considerations outlined here. This primer is a companion resource to a state policy "blueprint" which recommends select policies with the potential to address growing racial wealth and economic inequality.
