Baby Bonds — a Racial Wealth Building Solution

Presented in partnership with SVP Connecticut — A presentation and discussion with experts in Baby Bond legislation, a policy that provides children with a nest egg for their future.

Wealth inequality in the United States has increased sharply over the past several decades. Connecticut has one of the biggest wealth gaps in the United States — 5th worst in the nation according to the most recent US Census American Community Survey.

In 2021, CT became the first state in the country to pass Baby Bond legislation, a policy that addresses the racial wealth gap by providing children, starting at birth, with a significant nest egg for their future.

Join SVP on Tuesday, December 13 at Noon for an informative presentation and discussion about this racial wealth building solution, the challenges it faces and how it can impact generational poverty.

Leading the discussion will be guest panelists from The New School’s Institute on Race, Power, and the Political Economy (IRPPE) who are experts on this policy.
