CAPD’s mission is to help foundations, community collaborations and organizations and governments and public systems craft and execute thoughtful responses to pressing social issues. The central theme of our work is positive social change and our goal is to help those we work with develop their capacity to make change.

Founded in 1988, our work is national in scope and includes research and evaluation, strategic planning, and policy analysis. Our work is characterized by a “theory of change” approach, focus on results and outcomes, and a racialized perspective.

We are excited to announce the launch of the Racial Equity Tools website.

This site is designed to support individuals working in deliberate and effective ways to achieve racial equity. The Racial Equity Tools website is a mix of available and newly created content. It includes more than 1,000 tools, tips, lessons, research and curricula. The site has sections to help people learn, plan, act and evaluate. Ideas and resources are organized by concepts, issues and strategies. All of the resources are aimed at helping to promote racial equity within systems, culture, communities or among groups and individuals.

Major funding was provided by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The site updates and merges; and
