State Plan Goal 1: Race Equity

The Alliance will promote racial equity both systemically and within its organizational practices, working toward a vision that race or color does not determine the availability and quality of services, fairness of outcomes, and opportunities for communities and individuals.

Join the Race and Equity Justice Initiative

All are invited to become a part of the Race Equity and Justice Initiative (REJI).
