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 the 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 achieves its objectives through utilizing research; educating the public; policy advocacy; legal actions; and civic engagement of Long Island leaders, community organizations, and community residents of various ages and backgrounds.
We also form partnerships with other Long Island, regional and national institutions and coalitions to help make the goal of racial equity a priority throughout the country.
