In honor of Martin Luther King Day, this compilation of blogs will empower you to take action advancing racial equity and inclusion in your work.

Yesterday, Black Lives Matter activists blocked San Francisco’s Bay Bridge as part of a series of events and protests aimed at reclaiming Martin Luther King’s legacy. The demonstration got me thinking about action, and the active commitment that Living Cities has made to address issues of racial equity as core to all of our work. In the past few years, we’ve intentionally made racial equality central to our work. And we’ve engaged partners like Frontline Solutions, Julie Nelson at the Government Alliance for Race and Equity (GARE) and Junious Williams at the Urban Strategies Council to move the work forward.

In honor of Martin Luther King Day, we’ve compiled a series of blogs that you can use to take action on issues of racial equity and inclusion in your work. From explorations of what race means in different contexts, to responses to tragedy in Baltimore, to concrete tips for engaging historically disenfranchised communities, these blogs will help you devise strategies that not only get dramatically better results for low-income people, but move you toward doing so in an equitable and inclusive way.
