Course Overview

It is more important than ever for advocates for race equity to understand and address issues of race, implicit bias, and how to affirmatively advance racial equity.

The Racial Justice Institute is a groundbreaking national leadership program, centered in a commitment to race equity as an integral and essential part of anti-poverty advocacy. Following seven months of intensive training, Racial Justice Institute fellows join a network of over 428 advocates working on race equity issues across the country.

Advocates working with and for communities of color have a unique opportunity to play a critical role in advancing race equity. Read what three RJI fellows said about the program and how the skills they acquired in RJI and the relationships they forged have transformed their practice.
