Justice Equity Design helps organizations become more equitable for all members of their community by teaching the community how to talk about structural racism, shifting their institutional narratives, and enacting a plan for change.
In 2020 not-for-profits recognized that it was no longer enough to react to the ideas and conversations about structural racism that moved into the mainstream thanks to the Black Lives Matter movement. Not For Profit leaders recognize that, for the sake of their community, it is a moral imperative for their organization to reflect and act on the ideas proactively. NFP leaders also understand that there is a financial and legal risk in doing nothing: statements of solidarity must be followed up by actions. Justice Equity Design's workshops provide tools that can be used to reflect on how structural inequity affects organizations and then uses that reflection to form a plan for action.
