Racial Equity Resource Guide


Race Forward

Offices in New York and Oakland, CA

Race Forward (formerly The Applied Research Center (ARC)) believes that pressing political conflicts demand a serious treatment of racial equity that addresses both a history of injustice and contemporary problems. They see racism in and demand concrete change from our most powerful public institutions to build a fair and equal society. Race Forward conducts research to expose the subtle racism of laws and regulations that result in hardship for black, Latino, Asian and native communities. It uses public policy as a key tool to repair these historic injustices by designing and implementing creative solutions to contemporary problems. Through advocacy leadership it trains a cadre of journalists, community organizers and elected officials to make these solutions real. Finally, Race Forward works through journalism and the mass media to push our society toward a real discussion of racial justice in the 21st century.
