Knowledge for Change's Sake

The mission of The Antiracist Research and Policy Center is to produce knowledge for change's sake. We engage in research of racial inequity and discrimination that leads to policy innovation and implementation. We strive to build a world of equal opportunity for all, resting on a foundation of tenacious people who believe an antiracist world is possible.

Currently in Year Zero, we are carefully building our conceptual, fiscal, and strategic foundation to ensure the Center will become and remain a powerful force for equal opportunity.

Message from the Founder

We cannot sit on the sidelines as inequality passes on to another generation.

Despite spending years dissecting the ugly face of racism, I never lost faith in the beauty of human potential. I still believe we can build a world where equity and opportunity are inalienable human rights. That is why I founded The Antiracist Research and Policy Center. We must believe change is possible in order to make it. We must have faith in change.
