Joint Center Joins Conversation on Understanding the Economic Crisis in Black Communities

Joint Center Vice President Jessica Fulton discussed the importance of disaggregated data and including Black communities in the policymaking process during a conversation on Black economics and the jobs crisis with Solana Rice, co-founder and co-executive director of Liberation in a Generation and Kyle Moore, an economist with the Economic Policy Institute. The conversation was hosted by Dr. Seft Hunter of Community Change Action.

The event—Talking Power Summit—was hosted by The Black Freedom Collective, an initiative at Community Change. “250 Black movement leaders and allies, policy policymakers and practitioners” with the goal to “equip these leaders as they work to shape local state and federal policies that help determine the availability of jobs and economic opportunities for historically marginalized Black and other communities of color.”
