The cost of the racial and economic inequity in our region is $8 billion a year in gross domestic product. Furthermore, there are large wealth gaps between White residents and Black or Latinx residents. According to the Federal Reserve Bank, in the Chicago region, for every $100 in White family wealth, Black families hold only $10.29 and Latinx families hold $12.11—a nearly ten-fold difference. These gaps are expected to become even more severe if we don’t act.
