The Racial Equity Imperative: The Role of the Nonprofit Sector (Race Forward)

EXPO Keynote

Race Forward believes five areas are necessary to make meaningful change: narrative shift, institutional and sector-level transformation, community-led research, policy development, and movement building. Julie Nelson of Race Forward encouraged the Network to normalize, operationalize, organize, and visualize racial equity. How?

  • Normalize: Develop shared understanding of what structural racism is, what its effects are, and why it exists.
  • Operationalize: Use methodologies to ensure decision-making promotes racial equity.
  • Organize: Have internal infrastructure and partnerships, because no individual organization will dismantle racism alone.
  • Visualize: What would a racially equitable NYC look like?
