Presented by East Bay Community Foundation
March 13, 2019

Join the East Bay Community Foundation for an enlightening conversation on the statewide and local economies, with Lenny Mendonca, Governor Gavin Newsom's recently appointed Chief Economic and Business Advisor, and Margaret Hanlon-Gradie, Executive Director of the Contra Costa County Central Labor Council.

Running Time: approx. 2 hours 15 minutes, with no intermission, and with pre-reception
The Changing Economy in the Bay Area
With immense job growth and historically low unemployment rates, these major economic indicators point to a healthy and steadily growing Bay Area economy. Yet growth has been starkly uneven. While the region has added 531,000 jobs since 2011, economic inequality is on the rise. By and large, communities of color have been left out of the “rebounding economy."

Contra Costa County: A Microcosm of U.S. Economic Inequality
Contra Costa is the fourth wealthiest county in the state of California, but not all share in the prosperity. The top income families in Contra Costa County earn over 15 times more than low-income families. The poverty rate for African Americans is almost double the overall poverty rate in the county.

Join East Bay Community Foundation in the effort to combat unmitigated wealth disparity, and realize an inclusive, fair, and just East Bay.

(Ticket required for entry - Drinks and appetizers will be served)
