THE FIGHT FOR EQUALITY INCLUDES ALL OF US
Since 1981, Race Forward has worked to give a voice to the disenfranchised, oppressed, and all minorities from all races, ethnicities, and diverse backgrounds.
Race Forward also houses the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE), a coalition of several local governments that work towards achieving racial equality.
Race Forward is also the publisher of the daily news site, Colorlines, and the proud presenter of Facing Race, the nation's largest multiracial conference on racial justice.
In New York City, 88% of police stops in 2018 involved Black and Latinx people, while 10% involved white people. (Of those stops, 70% were completely innocent.) ----->

Race Forward has become a leader in three areas including research, media, and practice. They use these three areas to shed light on the current situation many minorities are facing in the United States, and throughout the world.
Race Forward played a large role in shifting the way racial equality was handled in a California County called Monterrey County. Through a multi-year effort Race Forward was able to come up with a blueprint of sorts which includes community accountability, culture shift, and authentic partnership for real solutions. This 'blueprint' can help minority and majority communities achieve true racial equality in all communities.
