  2. 2. What Is Racial Equity? “Racial equity is about applying justice and a little bit of common sense to a system that’s been out of balance. When a system is out of balance, people of color feel the impacts most acutely, but, to be clear, an imbalanced system makes all of us pay.” ~ CSI President Glenn Harris Center for Social Inclusion

Racial Equity ❖ An Outcome – When race is not the determining factor of everyone having what they need to thrive ❖ A Process – When those most impacted by structural racial inequity are meaningfully included and in the creation and implementation of the institutional policies that impact their lives A Center for Social Inclusion
  4. 4. When We Achieve Racial Equity: ❖ People, including people of color, are owners, planners, and decision-makers in the systems that govern their lives. ❖ We acknowledge and account for past and current inequities, and provide all people, particularly those most impacted by racial inequities, the infrastructure needed to thrive. ❖ Everyone benefits from a more just, equitable system. Center for Social Inclusion

  12. 12. While one can dumb down his lyrics, what one cannot do without being found out is hide his historical baggage, his sense of self. His walk…I come with all the baggage of Somalia-of my grandfather’s poetry, of pounding rhythms, of the war, of being an immigrant, of being an artist, of needing to explain a few things, even in the friendliest of melodies, something in my voice stirs up a well of history… ~ K’naan
  13. 13. Becoming allies means helping each other heal. It can be hard to expose yourself and your wounds to a stranger who could be an ally or an enemy. But if you and I were to do good alliance work together, be good allies to each other, I would have to expose my wounds to you and you would have to expose your wounds to me and then we could start from a place of openness. ~Gloria E. Anzaldua
