On October 27, 2021, attendees from around the country heard from The Whiteness of Wealth author Dorothy A. Brown as she shared how families across the economic spectrum are affected by not just our tax laws, but practices that reward white people while leaving persons of color behind in asset building and wealth accumulation. This powerful, high-level briefing included:
- How has the tax code impoverished and negatively impacted wealth building in our communities of color?
- What is the impact of the tax system on asset building?
- An understanding of who has wealth in this country and why.
- How philanthropy can have a pivotal role as a catalyst for change.
