The Racial Justice Institute: Bringing a Race Equity Lens to Legal Services Advocacy

Janerick Holmes, Kimberly Merchant and Ellen Hemley, Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law

Recognizing the critical link between race and poverty, the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law (Shriver Center), with support from a dedicated and talented national Advisory Committee, launched the Racial Justice Institute (RJI) in 2014. RJI is a cutting-edge national leadership program, grounded in a commitment to racial equity as an integral and essential part of anti-poverty advocacy. The goals of the RJI are to strengthen advocacy capacity of both individual advocates and organizations and to build an ongoing national network of equal justice advocates who are committed to and skilled in advancing a coordinated racial justice advocacy agenda
