Why Focus on Racial Equity?

National Racial Equity Working Group      Homelessness is a mirror. 

 The National Racial Equity Working Group is made up of more than 30 national organizations committed to centering racial equity in the response to homelessness across the United States. 

It reflects many things — including our nation’s living history of racism. But ending homelessness would reveal something else that is also true. 

We can create a future where a place to call home is within reach for all — and the impact of racism is truly a thing of the past.
