Racial equity is a state where outcomes are no longer predictable by race. The process to get there requires more than desire and will. The process requires intentionality and vision. Being aware. Naming what is. Accurately assessing. Acknowledging our complex history. Across the last few years, following national unrest after traumatic events like in Ferguson, Missouri, there has been a renewed spotlight trained on the many disparities still experienced by racial minorities not only in the St. Louis but across the Nation. Forward Through Ferguson, the organization catalyzing implementation of the Ferguson Commission report in the St. Louis region, is developing a set of tools to help visualize the complexity of achieving Racial Equity, map a path forward, and showing the various layers and entry points for people and institutions across the nation.
