THE FINANCIAL BURDEN OF INEQUITY
From basic needs such as housing or food to pursuing goals, investing in education or retirement, and managing everyday expenses, so many aspects of our lives rely on financial stability. But existing policies and systems meant to address economic inequities can also perpetuate and reinforce them. As a result, demographic data shows that underserved communities bear the brunt of these inequities. Even those making progress toward financial stability are vulnerable to income disruptions and unexpected emergencies that can take years to recover from.
