GARE (Government Alliance on Race and Equity) Initiative Gains Momentum in North Carolina


Team Carrboro is gearing up for the North Carolina GARE Cohort starting in October. This training curriculum focuses on capacity building for North Carolina Town, City and County governments interested in advancing racial equity by addressing institutional and structural racism. Staff will have an opportunity to connect, strengthen skills, and make an impact in the community. Jurisdictions participating will learn, practice and expand their efforts to achieve institutional and structural equity. The structured curriculum focuses on three components:

  • normalizing conversations about race,
  • organizing internal structures to support the work of institutional culture change and
  • operationalizing new practices, procedures and policies by using racial equity tools.


Team Carrboro is excited about this opportunity to grow and network with neighboring jurisdictions.
