REI's Groundwater Approach to Racial Equity Presentation - Raleigh, April 30, 2019


In this lively and participatory presentation, Racial Equity Institute organizers will use stories and data to present a perspective that racism is fundamentally structural in nature. By examining characteristics of modern-day racial inequity, the presentation introduces participants to an analysis that most find immediately helpful and relevant. This research-based presentation focuses on the following six points that are essential to understanding the realities of systemic racism as a predictor of outcomes in all institutions:

1. Racial inequity looks the same across systems.

2. Socio-economic difference does not explain the racial inequity.

3. Systems contribute significantly to disparities.

4. The systems-level disparities cannot be explained by a few ‘bad apples’ or ill-intentioned gatekeepers.

5. Poor outcomes are concentrated in certain geographic communities; usually poor communities and communities of color. 

6. An analysis that includes race often draws starkly different conclusions than one that does not. 

Cost: Sliding scale or $10

Sponsored by: Haven House Services, Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce, Raleigh Organizing Against Racism (ROAR), Wake County Economic Development
