GARE Launches Racial Equity Cohort in Northern California
The Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE) is happy to announce the launch of a learning cohort of governmental jurisdictions in the Bay Area that will be working to advance racial equity.
The cohort will utilize a curriculum that builds on the growing field of governmental practices to tackle this challenge and will feature an “Advancing Racial Equity” speaker series that provides the opportunity for jurisdictions to learn and strategize with each other and their communities.
GARE focuses on normalizing conversations about race, operationalizing new behaviors and policies, and organizing to achieve racial equity. We are seeing more and more jurisdictions that are making this commitment, focusing on the power and influence of their own institutions, and working in partnership across sectors and with the community to maximize their impact. This important conversation sets the stage for the year-long program of jurisdictions working together across northern California to advance racial equity.
