ERASE Racism is a regional organization that leads public policy advocacy campaigns and related programmatic initiatives to promote racial equity in areas, such as housing, public school education, public health and community development. It engages in a variety of research, education and consulting activities to address institutional and structural racism. Long Island, New York was the site of ERASE Racism's initial work and continues to be the geographic home and key focus area. At present, ERASE Racism's work is expanding to encompass statewide and tri-state regional activities with related national work as needed.
ERASE Racism achieves its objectives by utilizing research, education, policy advocacy and civic engagement of Long Island leaders, community organizations and community residents. It also forms partnerships with other Long Island institutions to help make the goal of racial equity into a regional priority.
