Data Center Supports Equitable Wealth Building Collaboration in New Orleans

The Data Center   (New Orleans)

January 2023

Launched by the Urban League of Louisiana in Fall 2022, the SEE CHANGE Collective is a catalyst for closing the wealth gap for Blacks and Hispanics/Latinos in the Greater New Orleans Region by focusing on three pathways to wealth-building – homeownership, business ownership and entrepreneurship, and income and wages. The Data Center, NNIP’s partner in New Orleans, supported the initiative through collection of public data sources, scenario simulation for goal setting, and identification of research to guide strategy development.  The executive director of The Data Center also serves on the steering committee. Their support for the initiative builds upon The Data Center's past work on identifying and addressing racial disparities, including through their New Orleans Prosperity Index.
