ERASE Racism is a regional organization that leads public policy advocacy campaigns and related initiatives to promote racial equity in areas such as housing, public school education, and community development. We engage in a variety of research, education and consulting activities to address institutional and structural racism. Long Island, New York was the site of ERASE Racism’s initial work and continues to be its geographic home and key focus area. At present, ERASE Racism’s work is expanding to encompass statewide and tri-state regional activities with related national work as needed.
Erase Racism identifies institutional racism and promotes strategies to eliminate it in housing, education, healthcare, and economic development policies and practices.
To expose forms of racial discrimination, advocate for laws and policies that eliminate racial disparities, increase understanding of how structural racism and segregation impact our communities and region, and engage the public in fostering equity and inclusion.
Transformed, integrated communities in which no person’s access to opportunity is limited by race or ethnicity.
