Embrace Boston is working at the intersection of arts and culture, community, and research to dismantle structural racism. We see a radically inclusive and equitable Boston where everyone belongs and Black people prosper, grounded in joy, love, and well-being.
Embrace Boston’s work to dismantle structural racism - the many systemic factors that work to produce and maintain racial inequities in America today - is grounded in a theory of change to shift power and harmful narratives towards the creation of the Beloved Community through three key levers by 2030: cultural representations, institutional practices, and public policies. Historically, these domains have produced racially inequitable outcomes, embedding structural racism within our history and culture that has allowed the privileges associated with “Whiteness” and the disadvantages associated with “color” to remain deeply fixed within our political economy. Embrace Boston’s work culminates yearly at our Inaugural Embrace Ideas Festival, a celebration of ideas grounded in arts, culture, and public scholarship that amplifies anti-racism and a vision for a transformed Boston by 2030.
