Our approach to racial equity centers those most impacted by poverty. We seek to deeply understand who is most affected by poverty and why. We ask people what they need rather than making assumptions about them or blaming them for being poor.

In co-creating policies and solutions with them, we address the root causes of poverty and strategically shift power to communities by centering 5 pillars:






Expressions of Our REI work

Our Work in Action

“We engaged them [Medici Road] as facilitators for an Innovation Lab that supported the design of a new community development model that addresses the homelessness crisis in Kansas City, KS. Working with them was seamless as they exceeded our expectations in delivering an impactful session that led to the development of 6 viable initiatives, which will be used to inform the strategy of a new community development corporation.”
-DeWayne W. Bright Sr., FUSE Corps Executive Fellow, Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, KS

Medici Road can strengthen your racial equity work today and in the future. We have been putting racial equity in the forefront of our organization’s initiatives since 2016.
