Overview
Race Forward (formerly known as the Applied Research Center) was founded in 1981 as an initiative to bridge efforts between analysts and activists by working with community groups, government, and national organizations to develop and implement policy ideas. The Center for Social Inclusion was founded in 2002 to partner with communities in the development of transformative policy solutions, to dismantle structural racism, and catalyze racial equity across institutions. In 2017, these two organizations merged to form the new Race Forward, thus increasing capacity and scale. Its combined mission is to catalyze movement building for racial justice. In partnership with communities, organizations, and sectors, Race Forward builds strategies to advance racial justice in its policies, institutions, and culture.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
Race Forward’s mission is to build awareness, solutions, and leadership for racial justice by generating transformative ideas, information, and experiences. One way the organization does this is by organizing leaders to move policy with a racial justice lens through the 52-member Government Alliance on Race and Equity. Community conversations are also a chief concern of the organization. In addition to the daily news site Colorlines; Race Forward produces the biennial Facing Race National Conference. Based in Oakland California, Race Forward recently merged with New York based, Center for Social Inclusion. We anticipate this grant will help the organization merge across geographic and tactic areas.
