Dismantle racial barriers to economic inclusion and civic participation
On February 12, President Obama will share his agenda for the next four years in his State of the Union. On February 4, PolicyLink presented its policy agenda to build an equitable economy using principles that grow good jobs, build capacity, erase barriers, and expand opportunity. As the State of the Union nears, we will share our principles daily. We urge you to adopt and share these principles or suggest others on Equityblog.org. For more principles and coverage of the February 4 event, go to Equity and the Future of the American Economy.
Dismantle racial barriers to economic inclusion and civic participation. Federal action is needed to address a host of barriers that conspire to reinforce racial economic inequities and prevent people of color from contributing their voices to American democracy.
