Research

Race Forward conducts original and broadly accessible research on pressing racial justice issues. Our research is focused on the ways institutional and structural racism leads to inequitable social and economic outcomes in our society and highlighting ways to nurture and strengthen social change. We believe that this requires an explicit, though not exclusive, examination of race and ethnicity and a “race and ...” approach that examines how race compounds and intersects with other societal issues. General questions about Race Forward’s research can be sent to research@raceforward.org.
