On Nov. 6, 2013, our publisher, the Applied Research Center, officially became Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation. Why the name change? Check out today's column from Colorlines Publisher and Race Forward Executive Director Rinku Sen to get the full story. But it boils down to this: You can't fix a problem you won't name, and after more than 30 years of working for racial justice, we are still determined to directly and openly confront racial inequity. Our name needed to reflect that urgency. Watch (and share!) the video above to learn more about Race Forward's work.
