Publication date: 
July, 2015

The Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, housed at Ohio State University, works to deepen understanding of the causes of — and solutions to — racial and ethnic disparities worldwide and to bring about a society that is fair and just for all people.

Kirwan Institute research is designed to be actively used to solve problems in society. Its research and staff expertise are shared through an extensive network of colleagues and partners — ranging from other researchers, grassroots social justice advocates, policymakers, and community leaders nationally and globally, who can quickly put ideas into action.

In the Pacific Northwest, this work includes the August 2011 report Opportunity & Mapping Analysis for White Center, WA.
