The Urban Institute, in collaboration with Duke University, The New School, and Insight Center for Community Economic Development, invites you to the release of a new report on the racial wealth gap in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area.

This study paints a picture of the wealth in area households by race, ethnicity, and country of origin. The report also examines the historic events and structural barriers that influenced the racial wealth gap and explores the implications for gentrification in Washington, DC.

The event will feature several of the report’s coauthors as they discuss the major results and implications of the study. Other speakers will include national experts and local leaders discussing the importance of the study’s results for the Washington, DC, metropolitan area.
