Congresswoman Beatty Serves as Honorary Host of CBCF ALC Issues Forum

Expert panel discussion entitled, “Money, Wealth and Disparities: Secrets of Success”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) will serve as honorary host of an Issues Forum, entitled “Money, Wealth and Disparities: Secrets of Success,” during the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF), Inc.’s 46th Annual Legislation Conference (ALC). The panel discussion will focus on equipping attendees with the much-needed skills and techniques to build wealth, close the racial wealth gap and leave a legacy for future generations.

Background

The household wealth gap remains staggering in our country. In 2015, the wealth of White households was more than 13 times greater than the median wealth of Black households and 10 times more than the median wealth of Latino households. In 2010, it was eight times and nine times, respectively, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of data from the Federal Reserve’s Survey of Consumer Finances.

Now in her second term in the U.S. House of Representatives, Congresswoman Beatty serves on the exclusive House Committee on Financial Services and is a member of two of its subcommittees: Housing and Insurance and Oversight and Investigations. The Committee on Financial Services oversees all components of the nation’s housing and financial services sectors including banking, insurance, real estate, public and assisted housing, and securities.
