Draws on 12/07/08
Fund for an OPEN Society (OPEN) is America’s only national nonprofit whose sole purpose is working to promote thriving racially and ethnically integrated communities.
We believe that inclusive communities create equity, breaking down the structures which have created and sustained inequality for people of color. Integrated communities provide rich environments for our young people, who will be leaders in a more global economy and society.
We believe that integration benefits everyone: by living in community together, we take full advantage of the power inherent in America’s rich diversity.
While the United States is the world’s most diverse nation, it is also extraordinarily segregated. Our racial and ethnic divide has been described as “American apartheid.” Segregation has denied many Americans the benefits of equal access to good schools, economic opportunity, and safe communities to live and to raise their families. It has also denied all of our children the opportunity to prepare for diverse workplaces in our globalized economy.
