We support a cohort of jurisdictions that are at the forefront of work to achieve racial equity.
A few jurisdictions have already done substantive work and are poised to be a model for others. Supporting a targeted cohort of jurisdictions and providing best practices, tools, and resources is helping to build and sustain current efforts and build a national movement for racial equity. Current cohorts include: Minneapolis, MN; St. Paul, MN; Seattle, WA: Tacoma, WA; Portland, OR; Multnomah County, OR; and Madison, WI. We will add more jurisdictions on a rolling basis.
Many jurisdictions lack the leadership and/or infrastructure to address issues of racial inequity. Using the learning and resources from the cohort creates pathways for increased engagement and expansion of the Alliance.
We develop a "pathway for entry" into racial equity work for new jurisdictions from across the country.
To eliminate racial inequities in our communities, developing a “collective impact” approach firmly grounded in inclusion and equity is necessary. Government can play a key role in collaborations for achieving racial equity, centering community, and leveraging institutional partnerships. Through the regional networks, we create access to a peer network for all government leaders in the United States working on racial equity.
We support and build local and regional collaborations that are broadly inclusive and focused on achieving racial equity.
