Welcome to the Racial Equity Tools website!

We want to express our appreciation to the many people who worked to relaunch Racial Equity Tools, which includes the merger of three sites, www.racialequitytools.org, www.evaluationtoolsforracialequity.org and www.racialequitylearning.org. 

Racial Equity Tools is designed to support individuals and groups working to achieve racial equity. This site offers tools, research, tips, curricula and ideas for people who want to increase their own understanding and to help those working toward justice at every level – in systems, organizations, communities and the culture at large.

We welcome your feedback and contributions to site resources, and hope that you will subscribe to site updates and become connected with fellow users on our Facebook page.

 

If you want to know more about who uses the site, and how, please refer to our 2018 Survey of Racial Equity Tools users
