Center for Racial Justice
At the Center for Racial Justice, we seek to explore, analyze, and understand how public policies have undermined or advanced the goal of racial equity, illuminating evidence-based solutions and supporting the changemakers who advocate for sound, just, and fair public policies day in and day out.
The Center for Racial Justice is a space for all who seek to make positive and lasting change in our shared society toward just futures for all.
What we want to do is put race to bed. But the problem is we can't do that until we actually face it. Facing it I don't believe will be complete in my lifetime because we've been facing race since before the United States was the United States. So, to deal with these issues, we have to deal with the fact of how central race was in the formation of our nation and the formation of policies we've enacted. Then, with that honesty, we can go forward in the present and actually make policies that can fulfill the promises of the United States as a representative democracy."
