In 2019, we began work on a campaign focused on addressing Boston’s ever-widening racial wealth gap by working with Black and Latinx entrepreneurs to come up with action-based solutions. In March 2020, COVID-19 devastated Boston’s economy, making the already visible wealth gap even more apparent. Our city, and the minority businesses that make it what it is, face unparalleled struggles.
We must consider equity in moving forward and rebuilding. In June 2020, we launched Color & Capital For Good and on June 22 we held the Color & Capital For Good virtual town hall dedicated to closing Boston's racial wealth gap. Join us for good in pledging to do our part in closing the wealth gap to ensure no family, business, or community are left behind.
