Race and the Recession

The Applied Research Center has issued a new report on Race and Recession which
tells the stories of people of color who are disproportionately affected by the recession. It uncovers root causes of long-term racial inequities that fed into the economic crisis. It proposes structural solutions to change a system that threatens future generations. [The report finds that] the distribution of the recession’s worst results is not random. Rather, the conditions that create this disparity are structural, deeply embedded into the rules, the histories and the cultural currents of this country.
For policies to address racial disproportionality in juvenile justice and child welfare.
