Buttigieg debuts Douglass Plan to end racial inequality

By  | 

(WNDU) - South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is proposing a new plan to end racial inequality in America called the Douglass Plan, named after Frederick Douglass.

The plan aims to build a $10 billion fund for black entrepreneurs over five years, then invest $25 billion in historically black colleges and pass a new voting rights act to ensure voting access.

"This plan is just the beginning, and I won't pretend to have all the answers," Buttigieg says in a campaign release Thursday. "But as we continue this campaign, I will continue listening to those communities most excluded from the opportunities of America, and putting forward policies to empower them still further."
