I would like to share a new report, Community Change Processes and
Progress in Addressing Racial Inequities. This publication includes case
studies of four community initiatives: in Charlotte, North Carolina;
Long Island, New York; St. Cloud, Minnesota; and Seattle, Washington. It
is our hope, by showcasing these initiatives, to begin to illustrate
what is possible when a community makes this level of investment and
commitment to address racial inequities comprehensively.
Over the long term, the racial equity field needs much more systematic
and consistent support. This report identifies the kinds of capacities
that are needed and demonstrates that, when they exist, significant
progress can be made. If we want the field to advance, we need to
encourage and sustain a community of practice around community change
initiatives to address racial inequity.
The paper was produced by MP Associates, in partnership with the Aspen
Institute Roundtable on Community Change, and was funded by the Annie E.
Casey Foundation. You can download the report at www.mpassociates.us –
look for the Tools and Publication tab. We look forward to your feedback.
