Over the past year—a year in which we saw some of the largest uprisings in support of racial justice in many years as well as a pandemic that disproportionately impacted Black Americans—many Americans have undergone a reckoning on systemic racism and its impact.

As a result, many organizations in the progressive advocacy and policy spaces are incorporating a more intentional and intersectional racial equity or racial justice lens into their work. Their goal is to ensure that advocacy and policy on all issues—from climate to reproductive rights to student debt—acknowledges and addresses the way that race and racism furthers harm against Black, Indigenous, and other individuals and communities of color.

To discuss what a racial equity framework looks like in practice, the resources that are available to organizations and individuals, and common missteps to avoid, Generation Progress guest hosts Brent J. Cohen and Edwith Theogene are joined by two expert guests in the field—Nia E. Martin-Robinson, a founding partner at ‘For The Culture,’ and Krystal Leaphart, an operations and policy associate at the National Organization of Black Elected Legislative Women.
