SCRC Names Programs for National Race Initiative

SCRC logoThe Study Circles Resource Center (SCRC) just announced that they have selected eight community programs to take part in a national initiative aimed at helping communities create and sustain public engagement and community change on issues around racial equity.

The programs will work with SCRC (soon to be called “Everyday Democracy”) over the next two years as part of the Communities Creating Racial Equity initiative. Programs included in the initiative are from Stratford, Conn.; Syracuse, N.Y.; Montgomery County Public Schools, Md.; Lynchburg, Va.; Burlington, Vt.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Sacramento, Calif.; and New Haven, Conn. The eight programs will work in their communities to reduce persistent inequality among racial and ethnic groups that show up in areas like education, housing, health care, the justice system, immigration and jobs.
