APRIL 6, 2018     ●     8:00 – 10:00 AM     ●     EY Boston

Massachusetts ranks at the top in education, healthcare and the economy. In stark contrast, Latinos in Massachusetts face the steepest socio-economic inequality in the country. The Boston Globe recently featured its Spotlight series about the disparities Blacks face in Massachusetts, yet Latinos also share this unfortunate invisibility and disadvantage across the Commonwealth.

Join us for a town hall style dialogue about Latinos & Race in Massachusetts. Our lively discussion will address the inter-relationship between race and inequality and the major factors that impact wealth creation and inter-generational wealth. Learn about the challenges and opportunities for our community, and how we can use our power to make a difference for underserved Latinos in Massachusetts.

This event is open to all genders.
