Center for Social Inclusion / Government Alliance on Race and Equity

The Center for Social Inclusion believes that a truly inclusive democracy is achieved when everyone can participate in the creation and sustenance of solutions that promote equity and fairness. To get there, we must recognize how structural racial inequity has excluded communities of color from being full participants in our society. We must also recognize, as a growing body of research shows, that policies and practices that explicitly address the needs of communities of color will build a vibrant, opportunity-rich society that improves the well-being of us all.

The Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE) is building the field of practice to advance racial equity within and through government.  Our focus is on normalizing conversations about race, operationalizing new policies, practices and organizational cultures, and organizing to achieve racial equity. We are seeing more and more jurisdictions that are making a commitment to achieving racial equity, focusing on the power and influence of our own institutions, and working in partnership across sectors and with the community to maximize impact. We are organizing in government with the belief that the transformation of government is essential for us to advance racial equity and is critical to our success as a nation.
