California has long been known as a beacon for progressive politics, but for many communities of color and Indigenous people, this idealistic vision of California has never been the reality. Our report launching RACE COUNTS makes the case for racial equity and lays out a path to achieve that vision for all Californians. Through our three-dimensional analysis of racial equity — looking at performance, disparity, and impact across 44 indicators in seven issue areas — we find that though racial disparities are present everywhere in California, each region has its own unique landscape of key issues and needs:
Through intentional coalition-building, customized, local data, and taking on the key drivers of racial disparity, we have the opportunity to make sure the California we pass down is fairer, better, and stronger than the one we were given.
