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.

for Earthseed International
Earthseed Youth International was established as an initiative at Race Forward by senior fellow Dmitri Holtzman for the express goal of building infrastructure and programming for transnational youth movement solidarity. Earthseed’s mission is to support youth movements and youth movement leaders to build relationships and solidarity across the world. The global struggle for freedom, equality, and racial and social justice, needs grassroots youth movements (among others) that are locally powerful and globally connected.
for support of federal government’s stakeholder engagement and racial equity priorities
Race Forward is a national nonprofit, committed to providing systemic analysis and innovation to complex race issues. These resources will enable the organization to host a Senior Equity Fellow who will support the federal government as it meets its goals with respect to the Executive Order on Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government. The fellow will report directly to the federal government as it assists agencies in thinking about stakeholder, civic, community, and public engagement in the context of their racial equity assessments, action plans, and implementation efforts.
