We drove a mile, across Troost Avenue in Kansas City to demonstrate the income inequality and the difference a mile can make.

Producers: Ian Gram, Cade Lawrence, Tevan H.

Sustainable Development Goals addressed:
Goal 1: No Poverty – End poverty in all its forms everywhere; Goal 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure – Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation; Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities – Reduce inequality within and among countries

Discussion Prompts

  • Can you think of other communities like this one where income inequality exists?
  • What types of policies and actions contribute to this kind of inequality and division, and what policies and actions would contribute to ending it?
