The Third Reconstruction

The United States is fraught with systemic racism and pervasive poverty. Our racial wealth gap has only worsened with the pandemic. 

The typical white family has eight times the wealth of the typical Black family, and five times the wealth of the typical Latinx family.

President Biden has pledged to narrow the racial wealth divide and to provide relief for poor and low income Americans. The revised Child Tax Credit is one step forward, but we need far bolder policies.  

The Poor People’s Campaign is calling for a Third Reconstruction to fundamentally restructure society, and the House has introduced a nonpartisan Congressional resolution calling for broad systemic transformation, lifting from the bottom up.
