Growing economic inequality in the United States is drawing bolder lines between winners and losers, underscoring deepening inequities impacting people of color and communities that have suffered from generations of disinvestment and structural barriers to wealth creation.

Join social innovators who are working to close the racial wealth gap in the U.S. and learn what you can do to tell the more comprehensive story about the American economy and those it excludes.

RSVPs for this event, which are required for entry, are now full. If you are on the wait list, ONA will reach out to you if a space opens up. Questions? Email

This session is designed for journalists and editors

  • looking for fresh, solutions-oriented angles on stories about the U.S. economy, as the economy becomes THE story once again
  • interested in reporting accurately on marginalized communities and the structural factors that shape their experience
