"I am researching the historical and current policies that have contributed to the racial wealth divide in Savannah, Chatham County through conducting interviews with individuals throughout the Savannah community and working closely with professors at local universities. My goal is to develop educational tools for staff and volunteers at Step Up Savannah on the history of the racial wealth gap, as well as to identify and suggest solutions for three local policies that contribute to the wealth divide for immediate advocacy efforts."
