 2014 Annual Report

Bringing Community Together

Civic Engagement Institute Graduates and Teaching Staff Fall 2014

Civic Engagement Institute Graduates and Teaching Staff Fall 2014

In 2014 we witnessed events in some communities, including Ferguson, Staten Island, Brooklyn and more, that made the importance of intentional integration, as opposed to accidental diversity, part of a national conversation. We have been having that conversation in our community for decades and for the last 19 years we have been proactive about community-building across race and cultural divides. We know the potential perils of a diverse community that is racially divided by neighborhood and by schools, and that lacks diverse representation in local leadership.

We are fortunate to have had since the inception of the Coalition on Race open dialogue opportunities with elected officials, leaders, the police departments, school administrators, clergy, and a host of community groups to discuss and work on stable integration issues. This is not a claim that many communities across the country can make. We use race-conscious strategies to build a vibrant and successful community in which all people feel welcome and safe, and especially that they have a voice.Ferguson, Staten Island, Brooklyn and more, that made the importance of intentional integration, as opposed to accidental diversity, part of a national conversation.

Inside this report you will see the many ways in which we provide the opportunities, the leadership, the professional voices, and the safe spaces in which to address racial tensions and conflicts that are crucial to advancing our community’s quest to be truly inclusive. In 2014 our programs truly resonated with needs at both the local and the national level to address the inequities that work against inclusiveness, including forums and workshops on cultural competency, implicit bias, and examining our role in greater regional equity issues. And we were especially pleased that this work was recognized in a USA Today article about diverse suburbs.

The Community Coalition on Race will stay the course on intentional integration and true inclusion of all marginalized groups. We encourage you to support this day-in, day-out work in your community by being a part of conversations on race, culture, and diversity of all kinds, and by cultivating equity in all aspects of community life.
