The Kirwan Institute supports racially equitable policy and capacity building through its policy and capacity building through its Opportunity Communities Model. This research model brings an intersectional analysis to focus areas such as housing, education, jobs, transportation, health, and criminal justice We are particularly interested in how Structural Racialization  and Race in Cognition create and sustain barriers to opportunity. Their studies find a vulnerability density index which has provided a basis for our grant.
