This session will unveil Race Forward’s interactive visual and web-based tool that unifies frames and messaging on occupational segregation by race and gender, in collaboration with the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United (ROC), National Domestic Worker’s Alliance (NDWA) and Retail Action Project (RAP).
