Racial Wealth Divide in Newark

The U.S. economy is built on a structurally unequal foundation that imposes systemic barriers to economic opportunities for many communities of color. This inequality is prevalent in cities across the nation, though it is always shaped by unique local socio-economic conditions. The Racial Wealth Divide Initiative at Prosperity Now developed this profile to better understand how racial economic inequality affects the City of Newark, New Jersey and its surrounding region and to help strengthen resources for the people of Newark.
