Every level of government needs to prioritize antiracist policies if we are ever going to effectively confront racial wage, income, wealth, and employment gaps. This session will discuss the need to center people of color in our economic research and policymaking, the particular harm Black and Brown communities suffered in the pandemic, and the state and local policies that can help us achieve a more equitable economy.
