U.S. Department of the Treasury Latino Economic Summit

June 23 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

With racial equity at the forefront of the Biden-Harris Administration’s policy approach, we have seen one of the most robust and equitable economic recoveries in recent history. With the passage of a once-in-a-generation suite of legislation – CHIPs, Inflation Reduction Act, Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, American Rescue Plan – we have an opportunity to take this same intentionality in policy design and implementation to drive an economy that truly works for all.

Please join the U.S. Department of the Treasury for Investing in the Economic Future of the Latino Community, on Friday, June 23 from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM.  We are bringing together advocates, researchers, practitioners, business leaders, and colleagues from across the Administration for a series of discussions on how we can unlock the full economic potential of the Latino community.
