What We Work For
Working in partnership with coalitions to dismantle systemic racism.
One of the consequences of our nation’s history of systemic racism is that many public systems cannot and do not serve people of color effectively.
How We Do It
We work to achieve a racially, economically, and socially just society by developing and implementing policies and practices, promoting justice, ensuring equity, and eliminating structural bias.
Our racial equity efforts are grounded in working with public systems to push them to confront their decisions, policies, and practices and examine how their influence can directly and indirectly harm—rather than help—people of color.
We do this by embracing innovative solutions and developing public and private partnerships that can effect real change at the systems level.
Ultimately, this work is about ensuring the healthy development of all children and youth in the United States.
