Building Racial Equity: Foundations
San Antonio June 25
The Building Racial Equity series, developed by Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation, are interactive trainings for those who wish to sharpen their skills and strategies to address systemic racism and advance racial equity. Unlike “diversity trainings” which primarily focus on interpersonal relations and understanding, these trainings emphasize how to challenge and change institutional racial inequities.
Building Racial Equity: Foundations is the first and “foundational” training of the series. Participants will build on and strengthen racial equity practices for themselves and their organizations and networks. This training will introduce participants to concepts, frames, and tools that are essential to a productive racial equity practice. Attending this training is required to participate in subsequent series trainings.

Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation united with Center for Social Inclusion (CSI) in 2017 to become the new Race Forward. The new Race Forward is home to the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE), and also publishes Colorlines, a daily news site where race matters. The new Race Forward also presents Facing Race, the country’s largest multiracial conference on racial justice.
Founded in 1981, Race Forward brings systemic analysis and an innovative approach to complex race issues to help people take effective action toward racial equity. Founded in 2002, CSI catalyzes community, government, and other institutions to dismantle structural racial inequity and create equitable outcomes for all. As one organization, the new Race Forward is dedicated to transforming institutions and empowering the community in order to move policy, culture, and narrative for racial equity.
