In New Orleans, there are six times as many Black families living in poverty as white families, with median income among Black households just $26,000. Such economic disparities stem from an enduring legacy of racial injustice, as well as unequal recovery from Hurricane Katrina, the BP oil spill, and now Covid’s disproportionate impacts. FUSE will work with the Office of Economic Development to develop and implement an Intergenerational Economic Development Plan designed to advance career opportunities, increase income, and build wealth in Black families.
