GARE convenes cohorts of local and regional government jurisdictions to provide a structured curriculum for cities, counties, and states to learn together, focusing on strategies that normalize conversations about race, operationalize new policies and cultures, and organize to achieve racial equity.

Our current cohorts include: Minnesota, Northern California, Southern California, and Racial Equity Here.

As a result of participating in the cohort, jurisdictions receive tools and resources, including a racial equity training curriculum, with cohort participants who are equipped to implement the training with other employees, a Racial Equity Tool to be used in policy, practice, program and budget decisions, a capacity building plan and organizational structure to institutionalize equity, example policies and practices that help advance racial equity, and a Racial Equity Action Plan template that teams will use to develop their own jurisdiction-specific plan.

GARE provides technical assistance to ensure responsiveness to the local conditions of each jurisdiction.
