FUSE is a national nonprofit that enables local governments and communities to create holistic solutions that advance racial equity and address pressing challenges facing urban communities. We envision that, together with our partners, we can create a United States free of the social and economic barriers to opportunities that have been perpetuated by a history of systemic and institutionalized racism. We believe that as communities adapt to constantly evolving challenges, economic advancement and equitable mobility are not only possible but achievable.
We pursue our mission and vision by placing experienced professionals in local government agencies to lead strategic projects that are designed to advance racial equity. Our work focuses on accelerating opportunities within the workforce, housing, health, education, justice reform, and climate resilience. We are dedicated to sharing the insights that emerge from our work to inspire all civic leaders to think and act differently in their efforts to achieve systemic change.
