Friends and allies,

Our country is far from post-racial. We continue to see racial disparities in homeownership and wealth, lack of racial diversity in tech, increased presence of hate groups, and more. However, we are more energized than ever to work towards equity. Join us and read some of our new and continuing efforts to build a nation where communities of color thrive and race is never a barrier to economic opportunity.

If you get the chance, read my newest op-ed on the tech industry and inequality and don’t forget to register for our 2016 Economic Summit — the early registration deadline is coming up.
