Growing Equity in Northeast Ohio: 2017 Year of Awareness Building

Groundwater and Phase 1 presented by Racial Equity Institute

Race has once again risen to the forefront of our national conversation. The outcome of a highly contentious Presidential Election that witnessed the collision of two radically different visions for our nation’s future, suggests to some that our society is hopelessly divided on the question of who belongs in America.

However, these incidents alone do not fully explain the tragedy of the current moment. In Cleveland, as in cities across the country, the inhabitants of high-poverty, racially segregated neighborhoods struggle to survive in the face of desperate circumstances—diminished resources and opportunities, underperforming schools, deteriorating physical environments, crime, and the constant threat of violence. The conditions in which they live all but predict the negative outcomes that characterize most low-income neighborhoods. Though the immediate future may seem bleak, the need for empathy, thoughtful discourse, and a commitment to justice, has rarely been more urgent.

Over the course of 2016, a dynamic cross-section of local civic leaders and community stakeholders attended half-day “Groundwater” and two-day Phase I trainings led by the Racial Equity Institute (Greensboro, NC). These intensive introductions to historical, institutional and systemic racism challenged deeply-held assumptions, and revealed—with sobering clarity—the devastating impacts of persistent racial inequality on our nation’s most marginalized populations.

In January 2017, Cleveland Neighborhood Progress and engaged partners will embark on a learning journey to increase our shared understanding of racial inequality, to foster productive dialogue among community stakeholders and civic leaders, and to determine strategies.
