R.E.A.L. Ohio (Race Equity and Leadership)


Below are just a few resources NLC and the REAL initiative are providing for our members as guides for addressing issues related to social injustice:

  • The Junior League 21-Day Racial Equity Challenge
  • Municipal Action Guide. NLC interviewed several current and former municipal leaders who have been through similar moments of crisis with racial tension. This document provides important contextual and tactical information to support a municipality's efforts to respond effectively. (HERE)
  • Advancing Racial Equity in Your City. This report provides six steps to help municipal leaders start improving outcomes for all residents. (HERE)
  • REAL City Profiles. These profiles can help city leaders who are looking for cities they can model their programs after. (HERE)
