Wealth or assets serve as the foundation of economic security, the ability to weather economic shocks, get beyond day-to-day living, and plan for the future of this generation and the generations ahead. 

Public and private policies, services, and practices affect the distribution of  economic benefits that create or deplete assets. Today, we see the legacy of historical, inequitable wealth distribution in the ability to purchase homes, the value of those homes, access to quality education, jobs, health care and affordable credit.  

In this program, we will delve into the role wealth or assets play in economic security and how it intersects with race, gender, geography, education, health, and work. We will discuss strategies funders can consider to preserve and build assets  that both address wealth divides and advance economic security and prosperity.  

This program will be presented by Annette Case, Pacific Northwest Program Officer for the Asset Funders Network
