About

The Seattle Race and Social Justice Initiative (RSJI) is a citywide effort to end institutionalized racism and race-based disparities in City government.

RSJI builds on the work of the civil rights movement and the ongoing efforts of individuals and groups in Seattle to confront racism. The Initiative's long term goal is to change the underlying system that creates race-based disparities in our community and to achieve racial equity.

In 2014, RSJI completed a three-year plan that broadened the scope of the Initiative beyond Seattle City government.

In 2015, RSJI embarks on a new chapter in our work to advance the movement for racial equity.

The 2015-2017 RSJI Three-Year Plan is now available.
