🏠 IMSPARK:Ownership Bridging Wealth Gaps in the Pacific🏠

πŸ’₯ What’s the Big Deal: 

The movement to close racial wealth gaps through ownership is a critical endeavor, especially in the Pacific🌊where disparities can be pronounced due to historical, geographical, and systemic factors. Pacific communities🌴 can empower their members to achieve financial stability and independence by focusing on asset ownership to build wealth. This includes access to land, housing, and business opportunitiesπŸ’Ό that appreciate over time.  

The big deal here is not just the economic uplifting of individuals✊ but the strengthening of entire communities. As ownership spreads, so does the capacity for self-determination, cultural preservation, and social equity⚖️. This movement is about rewriting the narrative from one of disparity to one of shared prosperity, where every member of the Pacific community has a stake in its future.

🏠 IMSPARK: A Pacific Future with Fair and Equitable Access to Homeownership 🏠

🏠 Imagine… A Pacific Future with Fair and Equitable Access to Homeownership 🏠




πŸ’‘ Imagined Endstate: 

A region that has fostered a culture of inclusion and diversity, where everyone has equal opportunity to build wealth and stability through homeownership.

πŸ’₯ What’s the Big Deal: 

The article by Brown and Cookson (2024) reveals that Black and Hispanic applicants are more likely to be denied mortgages than White applicants, even after controlling for income, credit score, and other factors. πŸ¦  The authors find that the lender-reported reasons for denials, such as debt-to-income ratio, credit history, and collateral, do not fully account for the racial gap in mortgage outcomes. 🌈 This suggests that there may be other factors at play, such as discrimination, bias, or structural barriers, that prevent people of color from accessing homeownership.

Homeownership is a key source of wealth and economic security for many Americans, especially in the Pacific region, where housing prices are high and rising. 🏘️ However, the racial gap in homeownership has persisted for decades, contributing to the racial wealth gap and intergenerational inequality. πŸ“ˆ By addressing the root causes of mortgage denials and ensuring fair and equitable access to homeownership, the Pacific region can empower more people of color to achieve their financial goals and improve their quality of life.

  • What's the Big Deal:



  • πŸ’₯ Financial insecurity affects over half of U.S. households, threatening their basic needs and perpetuating inequality. The New Wealth Agenda offers a comprehensive framework with eight key objectives to increase wealth ten-fold by 2050 for households of color and those in the bottom half of the wealth distribution. This agenda aims to foster financial stability, tackle debt, provide startup capital, offer wealth-building career pathways, promote equitable homeownership, ensure retirement security, explore shared ownership strategies, and leverage new innovations to protect and grow household wealth. By pursuing these objectives, we can create a future where all households have the opportunity to thrive financially, fostering inclusion, agency, and dignity for everyone. πŸ πŸ“ˆπŸ’°
