Advancing Racial Equity workshop in Chicago on Dec 4th!

Congratulations to the National League of Cities for the launch of the Race, Equity and Leadership (REAL) Initiative.

The inaugural meeting of the REAL Advisory Board provided an opportunity for elected officials and national thought leaders, including GARE Director Julie Nelson, to discuss the opportunities for REAL to achieve its mission of  strengthening the leadership capacity of local elected officials in addressing the impact of race and equity issues in their communities.

GARE joins forces with Center for Social Inclusion and Haas Institute for a Fair & Inclusive Society

Government Alliance on Race & Equity (GARE) is now a joint project of Center for Social Inclusion (CSI) and Haas Institute for a Fair & Inclusive Society (HIFIS), two national organizations focusing on racial equity and inclusion.

Through the partnership, GARE will continue to bring extensive experience to local and regional government to move a racial equity agenda, which includes normalizing conversations about race, operationalizing new policies and practices, and organizing, both within government and with community.

Understanding the impacts of race on our overall society is critical to our success. As partners, CSI and HIFIS will support GARE in its work while implementing connected strategies to align community, government, and academia to move towns, cities, and states toward racial equity and inclusion.

In the coming months, CSI, HIFIS, and GARE will release more tools for community, government, and academia to advance racial equity in local and regional government and to move toward a more inclusive democracy.
