Racial Equity Resource Guide


Advancement Project

The Advancement Project is a policy, communications and legal action group committed to racial justice. It was founded by a team of veteran civil rights lawyers in 1998 “to develop, encourage, and widely disseminate innovative ideas, and pioneer models that inspire and mobilize a broad national racial justice movement to achieve universal opportunity and a just democracy.” It partners with community organizations, bringing them the tools of legal advocacy and strategic communications to dismantle structural exclusion. It believes that structural racism can be dismantled by multi-racial grassroots organizing that is focused on changing public policies and is supported by lawyers and communications strategies.
