Merger of Nonprofits that Share a Commitment to Racial Justice

Race Forward and The Center for Social Inclusion work to advance racial equality through research and policy creation, training and capacity building.  The organizations collaborated on various projects over the last three decades.  They decided to merge together in order to grow their footprint, increase their impact and effect more policy change.  The SeaChange-Lodestar Fund for Nonprofit Collaboration helped to fund one-time costs associated with the merger.
