Racial inequality shows up everywhere, especially in our organizations and institutions. In many cases it's not intentional, but it slips in through our unseeing eyes.
Statements & Quotations

Keep in mind that these tools are meant to help you figure out how race operates around particular issues. To do so, we have to be very explicit in keeping race on the table for the purpose of analysis.
