Pittsburgh Regional Roundtable
Addressing Financial Stability Challenges at the Intersection of Race, Ethnicity, Poverty and Disability – February 23-24, 2022
The goal of the Roundtable held on February 23-24, 2022 was twofold: (1) to bring together community nonprofit and other organizations working on economic and racial equity, with disability and financial inclusion partners in the Pittsburgh area and (2) to identify and begin work on action plans and concrete steps those organizations could jointly take to address some of the barriers to financial stability and financial resilience that contribute to the significant wealth gap faced by BIPOC communities with disability.
The Pittsburgh Coalition on the Intersection of Disability, Race, Ethnicity and Poverty was made possible with the generous support of JPMorgan Chase.
