At Purpose Built Communities, we believe this work will have a lasting impact and demonstrate to policymakers that there is a place-based solution to intergenerational urban poverty.
Executive Board Chair
Our social, political and economic systems help reinforce racism and concentrated poverty from generation to generation. Over the past ten years, we have worked with thought leaders from a diverse array of backgrounds. In Season 2 of This Is Community, hear some of them talk about the history of institutional racism, how it affects our health and education, and how leading with equity is breaking down that cycle of poverty in communities across our country.
