COVID-19 has opened wide America’s eyes to the many disparities in our cities,
and the growing divide between rich and poor. While many strategies have been
advanced to close the wealth gap – raising minimum wage, housing integration,
and education – most agree there is no simple solution.

The 2021 Urban Forum takes on this complex topic of closing the wealth gap by
focusing on equity. Equity aims to give everyone what is needed to succeed by
addressing the historical and structural barriers that have created the gap in the
first place.

Speakers, panels and papers will help consider how we can collectively begin
to address barriers and build off of successful strategies to increase equity in
our communities.
