Lifting people of color in Baltimore out of poverty by MICA

Communities of color are disproportionately affected by factors that undermine opportunities for social and economic advancement. One of the most basic requirements to sustain a livelihood is getting to and from work. The majority of racially black communities in Baltimore spend almost twice as much traveling more than 45 minutes to work than white communities. Commuting exacts significant stress on the human mind and body. Shortening the time to and from work can have an impactful cascade effect, lifting people of color out of poverty and improving their health outcomes.
