Transforming Government for Racial Justice

This panel will explore the nuances of what it takes to truly transform government practices to address institutional and structural racism, strengthen democracy, and advance racial equity. While racial equity work is happening at all jurisdictional levels, this session will focus on the unique dynamics of influencing California’s state government, including how to build political will and increase accountability, strategies for influence both inside and outside government and combining training opportunities with advocacy and organizing. Panelists will also explore the importance –and challenges –of partnerships between government, nonprofits, and philanthropy. The Public Health Institute’s role staffing the California Health in All Policies Task Force, partnering with the Strategic Growth Council, and launching the Capitol Collaborative on Race and Equity (CCORE) will be held up as a case study, with discussants representing PHI’s nonprofit staff, advocates, community, philanthropy, and government partners.
