Join Sarah Rosen Wartell, president of the Urban Institute, for the next installment in Urban’s conversation series, Evidence to Action. During this virtual event, Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) will discuss his efforts to close the racial wealth gap through federal legislation. 

Following that, Kilolo Kijakazi, Institute fellow at the Urban Institute, and Darrick Hamilton, executive director of the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity at the Ohio State University, will join Wartell to address how the racial wealth gap has exacerbated the harms of the pandemic, how the pandemic may be exacerbating the wealth gap, and how tools like baby bonds can help reduce racial inequities.
