Now is the time to ignite unprecedented innovation for equity & justice
The Racial Equity Alliance (REA) is a coalition aimed at creating more equitable solutions to dismantle institutional and systemic structures of racial inequities with an intentional focus on the Black community. Using the power of collaboration and radical optimism, the REA incentivizes solutions in the form of impactful projects, initiatives, and incentivized competitions to positively impact individuals, communities, and society.
