This policy project outlines racial equity policy tools and explores opportunities for furthering
the impact of the Legislative Report Card on Racial Equity produced by Voices for Racial
Justice in Minnesota. Voices for Racial Justice is a Minneapolis nonprofit organization that
began in 1993 as the Organizing Apprenticeship Project, working to train community organizers
and catalyzing work for social and economic justice. In 2014, the organization shifted focus
exclusively to the work of racial justice. The Legislative Report Card on Racial Equity began in
2005 as an opportunity to evaluate the work of the Minnesota State Legislature in terms of racial
equity. It provides accountability, education, and a community resource. This report makes the
case for assessing governance and policy through a racial equity lens, lays the framework for
racial equity reporting, details the longstanding report card model at Voices for Racial Justice,
and explores new opportunities for the report card. Outside of the scope of this project are
explanations of and opportunities for federal and local level racial equity assessments, although
they are addressed. It is my hope that this analysis will be useful in informing racial equity
reporting in Minnesota, and can be an informational and inspirational guide for those working
for racial justice nationwide.
