Meizhu Lui, executive director of United for a Fair Economy, will present "The Color of Wealth" at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Center for Multicultural Experiences in Lee Hall at the State University College at Oneonta.
Lui's group is a national nonprofit organization that helps build social movements for greater equality, according to officials.
The event is free and open to the public.
In her presentation, Lui will explore why the distribution of wealth in the United States is so uneven; whether public policy, even when well-intentioned, reinforces existing inequalities; and whether race and ethnicity continue to play a pivotal role in defining the haves and have-nots in society, according to officials.
She serves on the Center for American Progress National Initiative to End Poverty and is a trustee of the Hyams Foundation in Boston. She is a longtime member of Freedom Road Socialist Organization.
