2002 Beyond the Talk: Improving Race Relations
Across the United States, communities are grappling with issues of race relations and race-based disparities. Within this national context, the Jacksonville, Florida community seeks to improve race relations and address racial disparities. JCCI's 2002 study Beyond the Talk: Improving Race Relations concluded that reaching a vision of racial justice and inclusion required eliminating racial disparities and discrimination. To build support for that vision and to measure community progress in reaching that goal, the report called on JCCI to develop an annual "report card" for community accountability.
