White Privilege and the Concentration of Wealth

October 20, 2008 @ 9:30 pm - October 21, 2008 @ 12:00 am

Join us for a presentation, followed by refreshments and discussion.

In recent decades we have witnessed a colossal redistribution of wealth in the United States, leading to the worst period of concentration of wealth and power in the last century. The recent financial crisis has our government bailing out bankers, while poor people are left without support. Such economic injustice particularly affects people of color: despite the promises of the Civil Rights era, the racial wealth gap in the United States has remained huge, with rich white people overwhelming benefiting from free-market economic policies, tax cuts, and other government policies.

Dedrick Muhammad recently published the report “40 Years Later: The Unrealized American Dream,” about the racial wealth divide. He is the Senior Organizer and Research Associate for the Program on Inequality and the Common Good and coordinates the Racial Wealth Divide Project of United For A Fair Economy.

For more information about the event and to RSVP please contact, David Krakow at (202)286-1622 or Burke Stansbury at (718)832-9399.

Resource Generation is a national organization that helps young people with wealth acknowledge their privilege and use it for social justice. We offer forums to promote cross-class and intergenerational dialogues about money, race, and philanthropy.
