▪ Race Forward Racial Equity Impact Assessment and Guide

A Racial Equity Impact Assessment (REIA) is a systematic examination of how different racial and ethnic groups will likely be affected by a proposed action or decision. REIAs are used to minimize unanticipated adverse consequences in a variety of contexts, including the analysis of proposed policies, institutional practices, programs, plans and budgetary decisions. The REIA can be a vital tool for preventing institutional racism and for identifying new options to remedy long-standing inequities. Five examples of REIA uses are also included. The REIA and Guide were developed in 2009 by Terry Keleher of Race Forward.
