Racial Equity and the Federal Reserve: Centering Black Workers for a Stronger Labor Market
The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and Groundwork Collaborative invite you to a virtual event:

Raphael Bostic, president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, outlined his views on the moral and economic imperative to end racism in a recent essay. He will speak about how the Federal Reserve can play an important role in helping to reduce racial inequities and bring about a more inclusive economy. After his comments, Heather Long, economic correspondent for The Washington Post, will join for a Q&A with President Bostic.

Following their conversation, Jared Bernstein of the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and Valerie Wilson of Economic Policy Institute, in a conversation moderated by Janelle Jones of Groundwork Collaborative, will discuss a new proposal that the Federal Reserve should focus on lowering Black unemployment rates to strengthen the labor market for all workers.
