Racial Justice Session 5: The Economics of Being Black

June 8, 2021    
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Throughout our first four panels, we have referenced the changing demographics, gentrification and displacement that black residents experience in DC.  In the Economics of Being Black panel, our three panelists will tell us about how the affordable housing crisis and displacement are impacting people in their everyday lives, about the economic well-being and barriers to wealth for black residents and the solutions that are being discussed and implemented.


The Racial Justice Initiative is a chance for members of the Micah community to take a deep dive into the systems of bias, racism, and oppression that continue to cause the racial disparities we see in D.C., in the United States, and globally. Each month, facilitator Rachel Faulkner will lead us in a Community Conversation exploring a specific area where inequities exist across racial lines, including education, justice, healthcare, and wealth. During each thematic session we will hear from content experts, community organizers, and leaders who are working in the field to change the way race determines outcomes.
