On February 28th and March 1st, 2023, PIE partnered with the Southern Christian Leadership Global Policy Initiative (SCL-GPI) to organize and host the Minority Policy Summit (MPS) at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. The goal of the MPS was to discuss issues affecting minority and underserved communities' ability to participate meaningfully in the modern economy and how they should advocate to receive their allocated share of the two trillion dollars in Federal infrastructure spending over the next several years. The overall theme of the MPS was increasing the inclusion of underserved communities in all areas of the economy and increasing their access to high-wage careers. The panelists and speakers discussed, Healthcare, Antitrust, Technology, Housing, Lending, Infrastructure, AgTech, Workforce, Cannabis, Education and Financial Services. Below are photos and of the event.
