Race and equity
For most of its history, the United States excluded people of color from its main pathways to upward mobility, creating deep social and economic inequities. Urban researchers and policy analysts investigate systemic barriers to advancement by interrogating structural racism, meaning the policies, programs, and institutional practices that facilitate the well-being of white families while impeding that of families of color. Members of Congress, government agencies, local governments, business leaders, and philanthropists seek Urban’s expertise to better understand structural racism and to inform solutions to dismantle it.
