What we do

We provide racial equity and health consultation, guidance, capacity building, and partnership to government staff to ensure that our institutions are accountable to the people they serve.

This includes: 

  • Training and coaching on racial equity strategies
  • Supporting public-facing reporting on racial equity commitments and actions
  • Pursuing government-funded racial equity positions and programs 
  • Collaborating with advocacy and community groups

In California, we work with over 40 state entities through the Capitol Collaborative on Race & Equity (CCORE) and the Health in All Policies (HiAP) Task Force to accelerate institutional and social change. We also partner with Race Forward to support a national strategy for state-level organizing.


State of Equity transforms public institutions to advance racial equity and health through capacity building, government accountability, and community partnerships.


    Black People, Indigenous People, People of Color (BIPOC), and people experiencing economic injustice, in California and in the United States, live their best lives, experience well-being, and are centered and reflected in government policy, practice, decisions, and leadership.

    Government is accountable to BIPOC and all people facing economic injustice, including proactively providing benefits, preventing future harm, and taking steps to repair past and current harms.
