Faith & Action Fall Event 2023
The cost of racism affects us all, but uniting across our differences to fight economic injustice benefits us all and promises greater opportunities for economic mobility.
“Is it possible that our society’s racism has likewise been backfiring on the very same people set up to benefit from privilege?”
This question, prompted by an exchange on a live call-in show, sent author and economist Heather McGhee on an odyssey to reveal the economic impact of racism. Her conclusion? Racism costs us all and fighting together against economic injustices could unite people across divisions and bring more opportunities for economic mobility. Hear how she believes this can work as she shares insights from her New York Times-bestseller The Sum of Us at the Faith & Action Fall Event.
