If you are interested in becoming a member, we encourage you to join a bi-monthly GARE Informational Session to learn more (link below). More information about membership and benefits can be found on our website; please note that there is a cost (pay structure is pasted below): https://www.racialequityalliance.org/members/join/

GARE’s focus is working with governmental jurisdictions. We recognize, however, that more comprehensive government engagement is often seeded by work within individual departments, people and community based organizations. Therefore, we offer three types of membership, Core Membership, State/Regional Agency Membership, and Associate Membership. Please visit our Membership page for more information.
Core Members pay annual dues on a sliding scale, based on number of employees:
Up to 1,000 employees = $1,000
1,001 to 4,000 employees = $5,000
4,001 to 8,000 employees = $7,500
8,001 to 14,000 employees = $12,500
14,001 to 20,000 employees = $17,500
More than 20,000 employees = $22,500
A jurisdiction may become a member at any point during the year; annual renewal dates will be based on the original date of joining, subject to completion of the membership renewal process.
State/Regional Agency Members are eligible to receive Core Membership benefits on a sliding scale based on number of employees:
Up to 500 employees = $2,500/year
501-4,000 employees = $5,000/year
4,001 – 10,000 employees = $8,000/year
More than 10,000 employees = $15,000/ year
Offices, Divisions, or Departments within state-wide or multi-jurisdictional agencies are eligible for this state/regional membership.
Associate Member dues are also on a sliding scale based on number of employees:
Up to 4,000 employees = $2,000/year
4,001 – 14,000 employees = $4,000/year
More than 14,000 employees = $6,000/ year
Associate Members can participate in group activities related to their specific department’s focus, as well as other activities on a space-available basis, but cannot apply for Implementation and Innovation Funding.
