In each city, the event will feature a special conversation with Rinku Sen and Glenn Harris, local community and culture, and an opportunity for our expanded Race Forward family to connect. The events will give space to reflect on this critical political moment, where attacks on people and institutions of color are rampant; honor Rinku for her leadership and wish her well on the next phase of her work as thought leader, writer, and journalist; and welcome Glenn to the helm of the new Race Forward.

Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation and Center for Social Inclusion (CSI) are excited to announce that the two organizations have united under the name Race Forward. Together both groups look forward to delivering on Race Forward and CSI's core principles of advancing racial equity and supporting communities most impacted by racism.

Both Race Forward and CSI have a long history of significant work on the front lines of the racial justice movement, bringing systemic analysis to complex race issues and helping people take effective action toward systemic racial equity in government, organizing, philanthropy, journalism, and other fields.
