Jeremie Greer has dedicated his life and career to the advancement of racial and economic justice. Growing up in the historically Black Rondo Neighborhood, in St. Paul, Minnesota, he has always been attuned to the intersection between race and economics. He began his career in the Columbia Heights and Shaw neighborhoods in Washington, DC, organizing youth and tenants to fight back against the economic forces rapidly gentrifying that community. Working at the national level in the federal government’s premier policy agency, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), and at two national non-profits, the Local Initiative Support Corporation (LISC) and Prosperity Now (formerly CFED), he has become a national policy expert on the causes and the policy solutions to close racial wealth gap. Jeremie has a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from the University of St. Thomas, a Master’s in Public Policy from George Mason University, and is currently working on an Executive Education Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership from Harvard University’s Kennedy School. Jeremie is also a Soros Equality Fellow.
The Center for Advancing Racial Equity and Job Quality in Long-Term Care (The Center for Equity) is a national hub for developing innovative workforce policy and fostering narrative change in long-term care (LTC). Our work centers the majority Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC) women and immigrant caregiving workforce and confronts the links between systemic racial and gender inequities and poor job quality. We unite diverse stakeholders in service of building the equitable caregiving infrastructure our nation needs.
The Center for Equity is an initiative of the Healthcare Career Advancement Program (H-CAP), a national labor/management organization which works with employers, unions and workers to raise standards across the healthcare industry. The initiative is generously funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
