Led by a collaborative of community residents, organizations, and government leaders committed to transformation and healing, the City of Boston has joined a national movement to ensure that policies and practices that impact the lives of residents are just and equitable.

Join us for a two-day summit, May 16th and 17th at Northeastern University and launch an inclusive cross sector regional network to advance racial equity and ensure opportunities for all. We hope government and community partners from across Boston and the Northeast region will join us to share local and national racial equity best practices and policies addressing structural racism and develop policies and alternative structures that challenge unfair systems.

Criminal Justice and Equity in Dane County

Across the United States, at each and every stage of the criminal justice system people of color fare worse than their white counterparts. The State of Wisconsin has been listed as among the most disparate states in criminal justice and Dane County is reported to be the home to some of the highest levels of disparity within Wisconsin.

How do we move toward a criminal justice system that is truly just? What are the steps to increase equity at each step of the process?

Dane County has researched and reported on racial disparities in criminal justice since 2008. As a member of GARE, Dane County has learned that best practices for effective policy must include strong engagement with community.
