Race Conscious Framing Working Group

In partnership with the Fulfilling the Dream Fund, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights and the Center for Social Inclusion, EJS facilitates a national “Race Conscious Framing Group” working to advance a national, proactive agenda around equal opportunity.

This group initially came together in the fall of 2008 to educate the public about the harms of prospective anti-affirmative action ballot initiatives, and to support the state-based campaigns to defeat them.

Since the 2008 elections, the group has continued working together to identify opportunities for information sharing, collaboration and proactive engagement to advance equal opportunity.

In 2010, the Race Conscious Framing Group hopes to identify options not just to preserve, but also to expand equal opportunity, and to support local and national efforts to implement race and gender conscious laws and policies.
