Race, Research and Policy Portal: IARA Project
RRAPP is a FREE online resource dedicated to summarizing and promoting research publications on diversity, racial equity and antiracist organizational change in private, public and non-profit firms and entities. Many of RRAPP’s resources highlight academic studies, which are often hidden behind subscription paywalls and are subsequently underutilized. RRAPP helps changemakers learn and find the tools they need.
ABA Statement on Policing
The American Bar Association stands for equal justice and has long worked to eliminate bias in our justice system. We always must encourage innovative and proactive approaches that promote justice for all.
To help accomplish this, the ABA, in collaboration with 52 founding ABA-accredited law schools, recently launched the ABA Legal Education Police Practices Consortium. The group, which continues to accept new member law schools, is examining and addressing legal issues in policing and public safety, including conduct, oversight and the evolving nature of police work.

My guest Richard Rothstein is the author of the new book "The Color Of Law: A Forgotten History Of How Our Government Segregated America."
