The Price We All Pay for Racism: A virtual conversation with NY Times Bestselling Author Heather McGhee
June 16, 2021 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
Join United Way of Metro Chicago and United Way of Illinois for an important conversation with Heather McGhee, author of The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together. We’ll discuss how racism impacts the U.S. economy, causing it to fail many of us. Heather McGhee’s personal journey across the country tallies what we lose when we buy into the zero-sum paradigm—the idea that progress for some of us must come at the expense of others.
As the United Way of Illinois 21-Week Equity Challenge comes to a close and we approach the Juneteenth holiday, we invite you to participate in what is sure to be a moving and thoughtful conversation about how we can come together to realize a new American vision—one that values the economic success of everyone.
