Poverty & Race Research Action Council

Washington, D.C.


The Poverty & Race Research Action Council (PRRAC) is a civil rights law and policy organization based in Washington, D.C. Their mission is to promote research-based advocacy strategies to address structural inequality and disrupt the systems that disadvantage low-income people of color. PRRAC was founded in 1989, through an initiative of major civil rights, civil liberties, and anti-poverty groups seeking to connect advocates with social scientists working at the intersection of race and poverty.
