Race Forward Intake Form

Thank you for your interest in Race Forward's training work! 


Due to a high volume of requests Race Forward is kindly asking you to complete the following brief survey to help us manage your request. Once you fill out the survey, your request will be forwarded to the team best suited to respond to your request.

Thank you for completing the Training Inquiry Form for Local, Regional, or State Government Agencies. We are responding to unprecedented demand for capacity-building support. Your inquiry is important to us, and we endeavor to respond as soon as we are able. Due to the volume of requests we are receiving, we are slower in our response than we would like to be. Please note: we will not be able to schedule requests for assistance that must be fulfilled within the next 30 business days.

Our priorities for service provision are:
- GARE Member jurisdictions
- Local, State and regional units of government
- Networks that serve government

We do not provide capacity-building to:

 - Police, Corrections and Sheriff Departments (please see our programmatic partner The Center for Policing Equity)    

 - School Districts
