Achieving Economic and Racial Justice for Black Workers: Policy Priorities for 2021 and Beyond

Date: February 24, 2021

As the nation recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, we must define what economic justice and racial justice look like for Black workers in the 21st century. EPI’s Program on Race, Ethnicity, and the Economy (PREE) hosted a discussion to identify essential policies for achieving recovery, as well as necessary structural and systemic changes that are key to remedying longstanding racial disparities in the labor market.
