Core Programs
Center for Social Inclusion (CSI) employs four interlocking strategies to advance racial equity: Policy & Research, Talking About Race, Capacity Building, and Institutional Change.

Through these strategies, CSI has developed programs to address racial inequities within specific issue areas and/or sectors. These programs include "Food Equity," "First Food," "Energy Democracy," "Transportation Equity," and "Broadband Equity."

Lastly, CSI's core program, Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE), works to advance racial equity strategies within local and regional government.
