The Good Policy Institute is a policy institute that focuses on the research, study, and assessment of policy through an equity lens. Race is the single most determinant of adverse outcomes In policy. In order to address the disparate effects across race and other intersections of identity, we need The Good Policy Institute, the only organization of its kind in Westchester County, to present The Honest Series. The Honest Series talks are designed to create collaborative thoughts on race equity conversations that parlay into policy initiatives.These policy initiatives are aimed at the mitigation of historic, systemic, and oftentimes lethal racism in Westchester. Following two successful and well-attended talks on racism in Greenburgh and race, gender and privilege in Greenburgh we will expand the offering to venues throughout Westchester County and beyond.
