Race and Social Justice Initiative
"In order to get beyond racism we must first take account of race. There is no other way.”
— Harry A. Blackmun
The Race and Social Justice Initiative (RSJI) is the City of Seattle’s commitment to realize the vision of racial equity. RSJI is a citywide effort to end institutional racism in City government, and to achieve racial equity across our community. Seattle Mayor Ed Murray, City Council, and City Attorney all endorse and support RSJI.
