The Applied Research Center (ARC) is a racial justice think tank using media, research, and activism to promote solutions.
Our mission is to build awareness, solutions and leadership for racial justice by generating transformational ideas, information and experiences.
We must move beyond a focus on personal prejudice and examine the inherent racism in our nation's systems and institutions.As long as the systems, structures and unconscious motivations that shape racism are obscured, racism itself will remain embedded in the fabric of society and transcend even our best individual intentions. To fight structural racism, we must document it, talk about it, and implement strategies and solutions that promote equity and inclusion.
ARC is the publisher of Colorlines.com, a daily news site offering award-winning reporting, analysis, and solutions to today's racial justice issues. Colorlines.com is produced by a multiracial team of writers whose daily reporting and analysis serves as a leading voice on a broad range of issues including politics, immigration reform, the economy and jobs. Colorlines.com offers readers the opportunity to take action on these issues through its Action channel.
ARC is a national nonprofit organization with offices in Oakland, New York and Chicago.
