Economy & Green Jobs

Race Forward
explores why communities of color consistently are unemployed, hold
less wealth, and are on the brink of poverty.  See how we can narrow
the racial wealth divide and create good, green jobs for all that can sustain our communities and the environment.

Race Forward is part of environmental movements to challenge the structures that degrade our food, air and water and worsen poverty and discrimination.
