D.C. Council Announces New Anti-Racism Office

The D.C. Council announced Monday a new office designed to dismantle institutional and structural racism and achieve racial equity in the District.

The office, known as the Council Office of Racial Equity (CORE), is based on Ward 5 Council member Kenyan McDuffie’s bill, the Racial Equity Achieves Results Amendment Act of 2020 (REACH) that passed the council last year.

The tools and resources for CORE, which will be led by Dr. Brian McClure, are available on its website.

“For every District resident to have meaningful opportunities to prosper, we must intentionally design policies that account for the history of government-sanctioned discrimination against Black people,” McDuffie said. “CORE will hold D.C. government accountable as we break down the barriers of systemic racism and build a more inclusive city.”
