What are the systems and institutions that perpetuate this cycle of poverty? How do we disrupt them? What roles do schools, school systems, and the child care industry play in addressing this issue?Yesterday I had the honor of listening to Nikole Hannah Jones speak on some of these issues and I'm so anxious to hear what you think!

Thank you for raising important topics.Tonya wrote: But on a more systemic level, I'm not sure that's the way to address institutional racism and the structures (including white supremacy) that keep Black and Brown people poor.
