Advancing Racial Justice and Minority Rights
The goal of this work is to secure equal rights and greater opportunity for racial and ethnic minorities and indigenous peoples.
Racial, ethnic and caste-based discrimination persists worldwide. Despite real gains, racial and ethnic minorities and indigenous peoples still face discrimination in virtually every sphere of life, from education and employment to housing and political participation, and suffer from many of the attendant socioeconomic disparities.
What We're Doing
To achieve equal rights and greater opportunity for these communities, we support efforts to reform and enforce policies and laws that strengthen racial justice and human rights.
