PRRAC: Connecting Research to Advocacy

The Poverty & Race Research Action Council (PRRAC) is a civil rights law and policy organization based in Washington, D.C. PRRAC's mission is to promote innovative, research-based advocacy strategies to address structural inequality and disrupt the systems that disadvantage low-income people of color. Our current work focuses on the areas of housing, education, and environmental justice, with a focus on developing actionable policies to overcome the mechanisms that continue to reproduce historical patterns of racial segregation. In addition to our federal-level law and policy research and advocacy, we provide technical assistance and support for local partners working on innovative, inclusive policies. PRRAC is a founding member of the National Coalition on School Diversity (NCSD) and helps to staff the coalition's organizing, advocacy, and outreach.

PRRAC has received financial support from hundreds of individual donors, as well as from the Rockefeller, Ford, W. K, Kellogg, Open Society, Taconic, Irvine, C.S. Mott, Annie E. Casey, Levi Strauss, Morton K and Jane Blaustein, Spencer, George Gund, Albert List, Fannie Mae, Boehm, AMJ, Tides, Caroline & Sigmund Schott, Nathan Cummings, Joyce, Abell, Akonadi, New World, Hartford Courant, and Freddie Mac Foundations, the Impact Fund, The Fund for Change, The Norflet Fund, The Fund for Greater Hartford, Working Assets Fund, the Fund for the City of New York, Funding Exchange, the Lindheim Memorial Trust, The Krieger Fund, and The Baltimore Community Foundation.
