People of color have faced long-standing and systemic disadvantages in wealth accumulation, the industries that they are employed by, their ability to access capital, and opportunities to build generational wealth. A new report has identified several state policies that have created discrepancies and impaired the financial success of people of color in the United States since its inception.
