The racial wealth gap in the United States continues to be stagnant. White families earn almost ten times more than Black families. History has not created a foundation for Black families for the future. Families should be able to live in worry free world, where they can own homes, be debt free, and not have to worry about healthcare or finding a job.

Shan believes in introducing legislation that will create a Baby Bonds program coined by Economist, William Darity, to help close the racial wealth gap. Every child in the United States will be assigned a trust fund through public resources depending on the wealth of the family. Every child can access their trust fund when they reach their young adulthood years which will help them start with financial endowment permitting them to having greater economic security over their lifetimes.
