CAP Action intentionally applies an explicit race and resource equity lens to its policy and research agenda. This means looking at potential impacts on communities who do not identify as white or who have large concentrations of families with low incomes, without conflating the two. We aim to set a standard where equity is not just a trendy concept, but rather one centered in all education policymaking and practice, and where institutional racism is called out and addressed as a barrier to progress.
