To create a vibrant region, we must take steps to dismantle structural racism. In Greater Hartford and across the country, Black and Latinx communities as well as other communities of color face persistent disparities, which create barriers to health, wellbeing and wealth building. These disparities didn't happen by accident. They are the result of decades of systemic factors and disinvestment in our communities, many of which are still woven into the fabric of our institutions. To achieve our mission and create a truly vibrant region, we must take significant steps to dismantle structural racism and advance equity in social and economic mobility in Greater Hartford's Black and Latinx communities. While dismantling structural racism requires a long-term commitment, the time to act is now. We know it won't be easy, but working together, we can achieve greater equity in our region.
