Here at The Dream Network, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding in 2013, we have been determined to make an impact. The core of our efforts is to bring our team’s fresh ideas and passion to fight the politics of disenfranchisement. Through all of our endeavors we hope to display the conviction behind our beliefs.

What Is Systemic Racism? - Wealth Gap

Did you know that in 2010 Black Americans made up 13% of the population but had only 2.7% of the country's wealth? That the median net worth for a white family was $134,000, but the median net worth for a Hispanic family was $14,000, and for a Black family it was $11,000? That the median wealth for a single white woman has been measured at $41,000, while for Hispanic women it was $140, and for Black women, $120? Did you know that? Do you know what that's called? Systemic Racism, and yes, it's really a thing. "What Is Systemic Racism?" is an 8-part video series that shows how racism shows up in our lives across institutions and society: Wealth Gap, Employment, Housing Discrimination, Government Surveillance, Incarceration, Drug Arrests, Immigration Arrests, Infant Mortality (. . . yes), systemic racism is really a thing. Featuring Jay Smooth, produced by Kat Lazo.
