US Chamber of Commerce – Equality of Opportunity In Action: Inclusive Infrastructure Investment

January 25 @ 1:00 pm CST

Join the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, January 25 at 2:00 p.m. ET for Equality of Opportunity in Action: Inclusive Infrastructure Investment.  

Disparities in public infrastructure have profound costs on communities of color. Past decisions on highway placement in decades past continue to separate minority neighborhoods from commercial districts. Today, fewer transit options and longer commutes from minority neighborhoods to job centers can make it more difficult to maintain employment and balance family obligations.

The bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act recently signed into law by President Biden provides a once-in-a-generation opportunity to close the opportunity gaps that exist in our nation’s core infrastructure.

Featuring policy experts, this program will examine this historic investment and the opportunities it presents for minority-owned businesses and communities of color.
