Growing Together: Hillary Clinton’s Vision for a New Economic Future for African-American Communities

The story of America and the American economy is a story of progress. But more than a half a century after Dr. King voiced his dream for a more equal America and civil rights activists marched and died for the right to vote, race still plays a role in determining who gets ahead in America—and who gets left behind. Racial inequality is higher than it has been in decades. The typical African-American family has just $0.08 of wealth for every dollar of wealth held by a typical white family. And African-Americans are nearly seven times more likely than whites to live in impoverished neighborhoods across two or more generations. Black lives matter, and our nation cannot reach its fullest potential until we address the social and economic disparities that too many African-Americans still face. These inequities are rooted in a history of discrimination and materialize today in an economy that is stacked for those at the top. Hillary Clinton believes it’s time for that to change. African-American families want the same things that every working family across this country wants: economic security and an equal chance at success. Hillary Clinton will fight for a new economic future for African-Americans: for every individual, family, and community, because our nation can only reach its full potential when every individual can reach his or her own—when all of us grow together.

Growing Together: Hillary Clinton’s Vision for a New Economic Future for Latino Communities

The story of America and the American economy is a story of progress. But too often, even while being central to this progress, the Latino community has been excluded from reaping its rewards. Latinos make up an estimated 17 percent of the population but hold only 2.2 percent of its wealth. And during the Great Recession, while the median white household saw its wealth decrease by 16 percent, the median Latino household saw its wealth fall by a devastating 66 percent. These inequities are rooted in a history of discrimination and materialize today in an economy that is stacked for those at the top. Hillary Clinton believes it’s time for that to change. Latino families want the same things that every working family across this country wants: economic security and an equal chance at success. Hillary Clinton will fight for a new economic future for Latinos in America: for every individual, family, and community, because our nation can only reach its full potential when every individual can reach his or her own—when all of us grow together.
