The Office of Arts & Culture is an active participant in the City of Seattle's Race and Social Justice Initiative (RSJI), an effort of Seattle City government to realize the vision of racial equity. The Initiative works within City government and with community leaders to get to the root cause of racial inequity: institutional racism. RSJI is led by the Seattle Office of Civil Rights and an interdepartmental team of City staff. Seattle's Mayor, City Council, and City Attorney all endorse and promote RSJI.
